Philanthropy education and service-learning guide young people to learn about community and their role in it. In the learning process they build community with their peers. They develop skills and knowledge. We guide them to explore needs, history, systems, and ways to take action. Their problem-solving and voice lead them to creatively take action.

How do we build caring communities? We all belong to many communities that form by location or shared interest. The following activities may be used as a group is getting to know one another to identify what people care about, and as ongoing dialogue and practice to foster a community of caring, respect, and involvement that leads to a better civil society. We all have something to give - time, talent, or treasure - toward building community.
