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 realize our mission and 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. We help strengthen academic, civic, and character outcomes for students.
Our unique brand of training enhances skills, saves time and money, and contributes to student success. Whether you are new to service-learning or a seasoned practitioner, training with NYLC fully prepares you to use best practices in your school and community.
NYLC partners with districts around the country to ignite a passion for learning and to guide students toward academic success. Through Districts in Action, classroom boundaries are erased and students learn by defining and solving real needs within their community. This model ensures disenfranchised youth are engaged and prepared with the 21st century skills they need.
Our work connects us with students and young people from diverse backgrounds, educators in formal and informal learning spaces, and community partners across the nation. Our approach is service-learning, which promotes positive youth development and increases learning outcomes for students. Young people are called upon to lead and create positive change in the world.
