LearnServe equips DC-area middle and high school students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to tackle our world’s pressing social challenges. LearnServe Fellows design and launch their own social ventures to benefit their schools and communities, growing into resilient and empathetic leaders. The most promising ideas receive additional training and compete for seed funding to maximize their impact in the LearnServe Incubator. In-school programming incorporates social entrepreneurship into the classroom, providing teachers with specialized curricula, materials, volunteers, and more. Students gain global experience by connecting with young social entrepreneurs in Zambia and Paraguay, in addition to implementing volunteer projects alongside local leaders in summer learning trips abroad. Since 2003, more than 2,000 students from diverse backgrounds have designed, pitched, and launched new social ventures. Put young people in the driver's seat and trust them to change our world for the better.
