These activities, papers, and toolkits help youth explore the issues they have identified as areas of need in their community or what they care about. They may discuss, seek knowledge from experts, or do more research.
Get to the Root Activity
In this activity, participants use critical thinking to deconstruct an issue they care about. They identify a problem, explore the root causes and effects, and research who the experts are. This is a great way to build community, use creative expression, and come up with different approaches to the next best steps in the service-learning process.

Learn more about the issues you care about. Each toolkit includes background on the featured issue, community connections to serve as experts and allies, lessons and activities, project ideas, and planning guides.
