About Service-Learning and Assets
Service-learning and Developmental Assets® are the foundational blocks undergirding the three curriculum pieces. Find out more about them in this section.
Change Your World

MLK Day: A Day On, Not a Day Off
These three half-day experiences for developing a Martin Luther King Day event help youth engage in activism at three levels as they also explore the meaning of serving, equity, leadership, and justice through advocacy.
Service Sampler: Finding Your Place to Serve
This sampling of 11 different three-to-four hour experiences within the community provides options with thorough instructions as well as inspiration for creating service-learning experiences that best fit your youth, your organization, and your community.
Looking Deeper: My Service Journey
This reflection journal becomes the participants’ personal record of their journey, deepening their learning and helping them see how they are indeed making the world around them a better place. Use this valuable tool with any or all of the three service-learning experiences.
We also offer a train-the-trainers workshop with this curriculum, as well as plethora of other professional development and youth retreat sessions on experiential learning, service-learning, leadership development and character building.
