Additional Background Information: Without your support we can not be the change we want to see.

With the United Nations Millennium Development Goals as our framework we have learned when children and youth volunteer they acquire employable skills. With this in mind we have created this program:

Service Learning - Education for Employment Initiative
Seat in the Class and Job to Pay for It

We propose; young people who volunteer in a community project/program for two or more years be given priority treatment in form of a seat in the class and a job that pays them enough money to support the education they need.

We are asking universities, public and private corporations,
governments at the municipal, state and federal levels to recognize and reward service learning by by giving preferential treatment in the form of free or reduced education fees at all levels of education
