About Our School Programs

Kids Giving Back can assist your school’s service learning needs by matching your students with existing non profit community organisations

What is Service Learning?

Service Learning

combines the delivery and exploration of key curriculum objectives and outcomes with the application of new skills and knowledge to address a genuine community need. (NSW Department of Education and Training)

Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. Through service learning, young people—from kindergarteners to college students—use what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems. They not only learn the practical applications of their studies, they become actively contributing citizens and community members through the service they perform. Service learning can involve a group of students, a classroom or an entire school. Students build character and become active participants as they work with others in their school and community to create service projects in a variety of areas.
