About Service Learning

Tell me and I forget,
teach me and I remember,
involve me and I learn.
--Benjamin Franklin

What is service learning?

Service learning is a partnership between schools and the local community. Through service projects, service learning helps students build academic skills while strengthening communities.

Why get involved?

It's a "win - win" relationship. Community organizations ("partners") get help with their own projects, while students enhance their academic skills, as apprenticed citizens, through meaningful service to their community.

How to get involved:

Does your organization have a meaningful project, need or problem? Would you like to provide an authentic apprentice citizenship opportunity for Montpelier's young people? You can become a community partner to a class project. Contact Matt McLane at 225-8052 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
