Great article about why & how we do what we do

In the middle of the busyness of our daily work, it gets all too easy to forget why we do what we do. If you're in that place, take a look at this inspiring story of a rich, muli-faceted and transforming project in the post-Katrina Gulf Coast:


After the Storm: Communication and Service Learning:


Of course, I'm especially impressed with the way the story makes it easy to understand that much of the impact of the project is possible because of Learn and Serve America. I don't think we can underestimate the importance of telling that story _every_ time we talk about our work.


NSLC, along with CNCS's Office of Public Affairs and Learn and Serve America, will soon be releasing new print and web-based tools for getting this message out there, so keep your eyes peeled for that too. And if you see or have similiar stories, photos, or a/v images of service-learning success, please share them here


(Note, I am especially on the hunt for photos depicting service-learning in action where the Learn and Serve America logo is visible).
