Synopsis

YES - Youth Engaged in Service learning is a recognized effective pedagogy for cultivating responsible citizens capable of democratic participation. About 600 fifth and sixth grade students at Hillside Intermediate School (Bridgewater-Raritan School District in Somerset County) participate in a service-learning fair. The students come from various communities, so they use email and web-chats to collaborate on global issues such as hunger and homelessness. The sixth graders participate in service projects, and during the fair they share how they plan to make community service a part of their life.
