Kids Who Care inspires students to love learning!

Service-Learning…

  • Incorporates service activities into academic studies
  • Provides concrete opportunities for youth to learn new skills, think critically and test new roles
  • Involves “youth voice” from the beginning
  • Provides structured time for students to think, talk, or write about their experiences
  • Provides students with the opportunities to use newly acquired skills and knowledge in real-life situations in their communities
  • Extends learning beyond the classroom and helps foster a sense of caring for others
