New York City's new system of teacher evaluation and development.
We're looking for great teachers, principals, administrators, executives, and more. Join us today.
The NYC Department of Education's Service in Schools initiative began in August 2010 in partnership with NYC Service, Office of the Mayor.
Service in Schools strives to expand the number of NYC students engaged in transformative community service and service-learning experiences that enable them to use their voice, skills, and critical thinking to affect positive change in their communities and the world.
Service in Schools offers a range of resources for schools to empower students, as well as recognizes and helps schools sustain outstanding service and service-learning programs.
Each school year, Service in Schools provides professional development workshops for schools interested and ready to implement service-learning, a teaching strategy that integrates meaningful community service with classroom curriculum. The workshops provide strategies for building a culture of service and service-learning in your school community as well as how to evaluate its impact on students' achievement.
Service in Schools provides schools with resources to create and enhance their community service and service-learning programs.
Through the monthly newsletter and this website, Service in Schools regularly communicates upcoming grant opportunities, professional development workshops, local service projects, partners, and helpful resources.

In an effort to further engage and support schools in service-learning and school-led service, Service in Schools is supporting selected schools in creating Service in Schools Kids Care Clubs. Selected elementary schools (grades K-5) will receive continuous on and off-site support and guidance from Service in Schools, in partnership with generationOn, to develop and sustain the club's project ideas and activities. Service in Schools club facilitators will also benefit from professional development and networking opportunities to maximize club impact and student engagement.
