Change Begins Here. Imagine a new generation of young leaders standing up for — and taking action on — the issues that matter to them most.

We identify high school and middle school students with the passion to make a difference and equip them with the knowledge, business tools, and relationships they need to transform their schools and communities — and themselves. LearnServe’s after-school entrepreneurship training, in-school social entrepreneurship courses, and summer international service programs prepare students to be social entrepreneurs and global citizens.

Through hands-on experience, students learn to use their unique skills to solve problems in their communities. They don’t need to wait until they graduate college to make a difference: they can start right now.

Since 2003 LearnServe has directly served more than 1,000 students representing public, charter, and independent schools in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Our students, in turn, have already touched the lives of thousands. We invite you to join us as we work together to reach thousands more.
