The Learning to CARE
Program is a program of training and support to schools to
help them establish or improve at least two of the
six service options presented
in the book Learning to CARE:
Education, Volunteering, and Community Service. The objectives
of the book and the Learning to CARE Program are to:
Motivate and provide
guidance to administrators and teachers of educational institutions to
establish, expand, and improve programs of volunteering and community
service in their schools.
Motivate students to
serve their society as volunteers.
Help students get
the most from their volunteer experience.
Develop the ability
of the students themselves to select, plan, organize, execute and
reflect on their service efforts with the guidance and supervision of
knowledge, commitment, and sense of civic responsibility of these
develop into life-long volunteers actively engaged in improving their
and support to school parent committees and to other interested
parents about how they can better understand their roles and increase
their effectiveness in support of the school(s) their children attend.
and support to NGOs, service institutions, and local government units
regarding how they can provide effective service opportunities,
financial and material support, and role models of volunteering for
students engaged in school service programs.
The program was funded for the 2005-2006 academic year by an AFKAR Grant
of the European Union and the Office of the Minister of State for
Administrative Reform (OMSAR). Representatives from over 80 schools
attended training workshops and 41 schools actually developed service
programs as a result of the LTC Program.
AVS is currently working on developing and improving training materials
for schools to help them implement the services options presented in the
book Learning to CARE.
