Learn and Serve Tampa, Inc. wants to give students purpose in learning through service! LST provides support to Tampa-area K-12 classrooms using service-learning as an instructional strategy in order to make lessons more meaningful, build civic engagement, personal and social skills, and academic knowledge based on real-world issues.
Learn and Serve Tampa, Inc. was founded by a teacher for teachers who want to use service-learning as an instructional strategy in their Tampa area, K-12 classrooms. Our goal is to create a hub for service-learning, which will provide training, mentoring, materials, and supplies, as well as assist with connections to other nonprofits, civic organizations, government agencies, and businesses. Started in 2020, incorporated in 2021, Learn and Serve Tampa, Inc. launched with a Youth Service Leadership Summit on September 10, 2022 with over 100 participants from 15 HCPS schools. Since August 2022, over 500 students have participated in projects or programs with LST, and 400 students have been introduced to service-learning through AVID and IB classrooms. Our goal is to have youth develop ideas to meet needs they deem critical, and allow LST to make them into high-quality service-learning projects.
