Title
Proclamation Declaring April 2010 Florida Service-Learning Month

Discussion

Florida Learn and Serve, a federally-funded grant program supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service, has long been a champion of service learning in Florida.  In 2008, Florida Learn and Serve was instrumental in the declaration of April as Florida Service-Learning Month.  Each April, teachers and schools are encouraged to engage in service-learning projects, promote the spirit of service learning, and observe the month with appropriate activities, programs, and ceremonies supporting the theme, "Raising Our Voices for Service Learning."



Recommendation

Adopt a resolution proclaiming April 2010 as Florida Service-Learning Month.
