"Service Learning Toolkit from National Geographic Society"

Program, Train The Trainer


A Service Learning Educator Guide for educators to plan, develop and implement service learning projects in their classrooms.

We at National Geographic are excited to offer this Service Learning Toolkit for you to plan, develop and implement service learning projects. Inspired by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai and her remarkable work as a leading global activist for girls’ education, this toolkit draws on the groundbreaking documentary He Named Me Malalafeatured on National Geographic Channel. This film, based on the book “I Am Malala,” provides intimate insight into her relationship with her family, and her powerful global impact. We hope you take advantage of this resource and that it inspires you to execute a service learning project in the same spirit that Malala and the film about her life inspired us to create it.

Service learning gives students in Grades 5-12 an opportunity to see how their own interests can be turned into action, empowering them to recognize their own roles in effecting change. The toolkit walks you through the key steps of service learning:

  • identifying issues, researching and planning
  • taking action, reflecting and evaluating
  • communicating and celebrating the outcomes

The Service Learning Toolkit is made up of the following four components

  • Educator Guide
  • Family Guide
  • Community Partner Guide
  • Service Learning Workbook

It is our hope that the greater education community finds this to be a valuable, one-of-a-kind resource. It is free, accessible to everyone and we need help spreading the word. We ask that you share this with your peers, friends, other students, educators and community partners. Your feedback is important as well. We welcome your tweets and posts at @NatGeoEducation and @NatGeoChannel #InspiredByMalala #HeNamedMeMalala
