National Service-Learning Leader Schools Initiative for Middle and High Schools
The National Service-Learning Leader Schools program is a national initiative that recognizes middle and high schools for excellence in service-learning and is sponsored by the Corporation for National Service.
Middle and high schools in the United States, Indian Tribes, and the U. S. Territories are eligible to apply for this national recognition. Schools must serve the community and demonstrate a high quality of service-learning at the school level.
