"Educating the MIND without educating the HEART is no education at all."

- Aristotle  

As an educator your job involves so much more than simply standing up delivering lessons. Everyday you are challenged to meet the needs of our students with fewer resources and less support. And yet you manage to creatively address these challenges in ways that continue to amaze us!

Through our programs we hope you will find engaging and creative tools to bring effective service-learning to your schools. Try us out and see what you think!
