The LEADERS model of service-learning incorporates the eight K-12 Service-Learning Standards for Quality Practice into an easy-to-remember format that is applicable to students and teachers alike. These seven simple steps, informed by youth input and curriculum outcomes, provide a roadmap for transformative learning through meaningful service. Equally effective in in-school and out-of-school settings, the LEADERS model can be used as blueprint for getting started or a guide to best practices for established projects.
