Mission Statement

LearnServe International equips high school students from diverse backgrounds with the entrepreneurial vision, tenacity, confidence, and leadership skills needed to tackle social challenges at home and abroad.

Description

What do a concussion detection app, a fleet of electric school buses, and a college scholarship fund for children of incarcerated
parents have in common? They were all proposed and launched by LearnServe high school students.

We are creating a culture of youth-led social innovation in the DC area. We equip middle and high school students from public,
independent, and charter schools with the business skills, vision, and tenacity to launch social ventures - projects to benefit their
communities. We offer interconnected programs:

LearnServe Fellows
Extracurricular social entrepreneurship training for 60-70 students.

LearnServe Abroad
Hands-on study of social innovation in global context, through work with community organizations in Jamaica, Paraguay, South Africa, and Zambia.

Seeding Social Innovation
In-school LearnServe curriculum in public, independent, and charter schools in the Washington, DC area.
