LearnServe International is truly an amazing organization. I've witnessed first hand its tremendous impact. LearnServe is an enabling and mentoring organization that provides the tools and confidence to teenagers to be social entrepreneurs and "changemakers." It's impressive to see what young people can do once they identify a need in their community and are given the support and know how to make things happen.
