UW-RF, in partnership with the national Youth Leadership Council, developed an online graduate-level certificate. The program assists educators and other to plan and apply service-learning methods in their classrooms and communities.

The certificate program is offered entirely online with a cohort of peers and completed within one year. It uses a variety of multimedia tools for an interactive learning experience. Much of the skills learned can be applied immediately to classroom and community settings.

According to the Learn and Serve America program, some 1 million students participated in service-learning last year.
