Support Educators

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 through the Generator School Network. We help strengthen academic, civic, and character outcomes for students.
