is the service learning program of 4-H Youth Development and
UT Extension. The initiative began in October 2000 through
a Learn and Serve grant under an agreement with the Tennessee
Commission on National and Community Service.
Our goal is to help 4-H'ers across the Volunteer
State to learn while they are serving their communities. In
the first four years of the program, 236,176
4-H'ers partnered with 19,832 adults to conduct
5,627 service learning projects. They dedicated
more than 714,804 hours to helping 867,126
citizens of their local, national and global communities!
So, what's all the fuss about? Why are so
many 4-H'ers getting involved in their communities?
in, surf around and see what 4-H S.O.S. is all about!
Find the definition of service learning, how
to apply for a grant to fund your service projects, what's
new in 4-H S.O.S., and where to go on the Web to find other
great service learning information. You can also tell us about
the projects you're already doing, discover a few ideas for
service relating to your 4-H project, and see some great pictures
from projects across Tennessee. We even have a special section
that's just for 4-H'ers who were elected as Service Learning
Chairmen in their clubs or project groups.
