NYLC is the leading resource for schools and organizations involved in service-learning. Every day, we partner with teachers, schools, districts, and out-of-school youth programs to drive student engagement through service-learning. NYLC supports educators by delivering research-based professional development grounded in service-learning. More than just a one-time event, training with NYLC includes classroom-embedded coaching, face-to-face events, and sustained online support.
Interested in strengthening the outcomes of your teaching? Partner with NYLC to capitalize on our many years of experience, working from the classroom to the state level, across the country and abroad. Engage us for customized trainings, ongoing coaching, curriculum development, state-level initiatives, or keynote addresses.
NYLC partners with districts around the country to strengthen school cultures through service-learning. Often the outgrowth of an NYLC customized training, Districts in Action helps teachers and schools grow their civic engagement to involve more educators and sites. Rooted in research-based practices, this inclusive approach can range from a semester-long to multi-year partnership.
Informal education is at the heart of NYLC’s history. First a camp experience, then an after-school approach, service-learning thrives in nonformal settings. Put young people at the center of civic engagement, and watch their passions grow to affect their academic outcomes.
