KIDS (Kids Involved Doing Service) Consortium

This organization in Maine "works with teachers, administrators, and community partners to involve K-12 students in addressing real challenges faced by their communities. Together they identify, research, and work to solve problems and meet needs. With guidance from KIDS, teachers match projects to school curricula and state standards, providing a powerful "hands on" learning experience that improves the community and brings academics to life. The KIDS award winning service-learning model has three essential components: Academic Integrity, Apprentice Citizenship, and Student Ownership."
