Service Learning

Seattle Parks and Recreation has a wide range of service-learning and community service opportunities in your neighborhoods. Please consult your counselor or teacher at your school to find what the requirements are for your respective school and have the project approved. Youth are responsible for supplying the appropriate paperwork to document service-learning and community service hours. See more on our Service Learning page.
