How We Give Back

Service-Learning Grants

Service-learning is a teaching strategy that connects classroom curriculum with service projects that engage students socially, civically and academically. A high-quality service-learning experience combines meaningful service with in-depth learning. Service-learning begins with classroom content and moves into the community through the planning and implementation of a service-project. Service-learning Grants are available to Bethlehem Area School District teachers to implement high-quality service-learning projects. Click here to learn more
