Through collective action on public policy, advocacy, research, and partnerships, NYLC is leading the charge to increase the national visibility of service-learning and to gain new champions both on Capitol Hill and in classrooms across the United States.

Young people address public policy and advocate for service-learning throughout all of our programs. In Project Ignition, students develop driver safety recommendations for lawmakers. At the National Service-Learning Conference, attendees lobby government officials to make service-learning a priority. In the Generator School Network, participants share service-learning projects that revolve around advocacy efforts on issues that matter to them.

To change the world, service-learning must find champions in national and world leaders. NYLC is working to make this a reality.
