Learn and Serve America School-Based grants to Indian Tribes and U. S. Territories enable selected applicants to do one of two things:
enhance and/or expand effective service-learning programs already underway; or develop new service-learning programs in tribal communities or areas within the U. S. Territories Learn and Serve America School-Based grants are designed to involve school-age youth in service-learning projects that simultaneously support student development and meet community needs in areas such as the environment, education, public safety, and other human needs.
