Since its founding in 1987, Need in Deed’s mission has been to use the classroom to prepare young people for civic responsibility and service to others, enabling them to become capable, contributing members of society. Working in public, charter, independent and faith-based schools, we train and support teachers as they adopt a teaching and learning strategy known as service-learning.

Through a yearlong project, students gain an understanding of the practical applications of schoolwork – reading, math, social studies and science – as they use these skills to make positive, productive responses to challenging issues of concern to them in their schools and communities.
