Education and Youth

Education and Youth

The foundation of any community is a strong education system. Mayors are uniquely positioned to understand the needs of their schools and students, partner with local education and youth-focused organizations, and enable residents to play a role in preparing students for success in school and life. Cities of Service supports mayors to form partnerships with school districts and nonprofits to engage volunteers to help students most in need.

Develop a Citywide Service Plan

The Cities of Service Playbook can guide cities of any size and makeup, i.e. whether mayor-council, council-manager. It guides city leaders in the development of a citywide service plan – an essential, living document that establishes goals and means, evolves over time with city priorities, and is key to successful implementation of impact volunteering initiatives. This Playbook provides examples and planning tools to help cities assess needs and arrive at their own unique plans. Many cities use the Playbook as a step-by-step guide while others reference specific sections and/or resources.
