NYLC partners with school districts, afterschool programs, and educators around the country to strengthen youth voice, ensuring students’ academic success and improving school/community relations through service-learning.
Often the outgrowth of an NYLC customized training, our technical assistance helps grow youth civic engagement by engaging more educators and sites. Informed by decades of research, our inclusive approach can range from a semester-long to multi-year partnership.
Service-learning is youth-led, increasing motivation and agency for students. It often engages those least likely to be asked to serve.
Our technical assistance is malleable; it is designed to meet a your needs and goals. In general, professional development for educators is bolstered by leadership development for students. Ongoing coaching with NYLC’s team supports instructional change at the classroom or program level, engaging students and educators in practices that foster the critical thinking skills necessary for college, career, and civic life.
NYLC also works with district administrators, policy leaders, and community partners to marshal sustained support.
