About Our Service Learning Projects

Not only can you have a significant impact on curbing the vaping epidemic, you can build your resume through development of important skills that colleges and employers love – such as public speaking, social advocacy, and fundraising –  earn school credit (where possible), and have an opportunity for state & national recognition. Our projects provide guidance and a framework to conduct each service learning project.

This program is available in partnership with: HOSA, SayWhat, and other wonderful organizations.
