LearnServe Fellows have the opportunity to

  • Connect with like-minded students from schools across the DC area.
  • Meet local leaders tackling poverty, hunger, discrimination, climate change, and other pressing social problems, in DC and around the world.
  • Develop your leadership skills so that you are prepared to respond to these global challenges.
  • Design and launch your own “social venture”—an organization or project that will benefit your school or community.

LearnServe Fellows Program in Brief

  • Meet on Thursday afternoons, 4:30–6:30pm weekly, September to May.  (All meetings Metro accessible)
  • Participate in an overnight weekend retreat (September), two Saturday skills workshops, and two weekend service days.
  • Pitch your “ventures” to a review panel of professionals, for seed grants to get your projects started.
