Beyond Leaf Raking: Learning to Serve/Serving to Learn




The research evidence is clear: Not only is serving others theologically appropriate, but youth who serve others are more likely to have a positive outlook on life and are less likely than other youth to be involved in at-risk behaviors. Beyond Leaf Raking presents a foundation for youth service, shows how to integrate service-learning into youth ministry, and features stories and illustrations from congregations. In addition, this resource includes practical checklists, worksheets, surveys, guidelines for congregations, and a formal evaluation tool for measuring the impact of service of youth.
