Student Activists for Service-learning (SASL) is a youth leadership group of high school students from New Haven area schools. SASLís goals are to advocate to teachers for using service-learning as a different method of learning. Students are more interested in academics when they can see the connection between what they are learning and how to use their knowledge in the community.
SASL has completed seven years of service to the New Haven and surrounding communities, supporting over 60 service-learning projects. In addition presenting to teachers, SASL members also encourage peers to remain in schools through their
Career Catchers; Circle of Support for a Lifetime of Success program. Check out some of the
projects that SASL got started.
SASL members receive in depth training in leadership and service-learning so they can administer their own service-learning projects and teach others. Members have represented Connecticut at national and regional conferences and have presented and provided training to others annually.
