Community Service & Learning Projects - High School & College Students. The César Chávez Serve and Learn Program is meant to instill an ethic of service and civic responsibility in our young people. The César Chávez Scholarship Fund believes that students, teachers, labor, business and community members should become involved in their communities to gain the unique opportunity to learn about César Chávez, and to advance his values and principles by engaging in volunteer, educational, and cultural activities in their communities.

Proposals under this category should demonstrate enhancement of the student’s learning and academic experience in conjunction with his or her community experience. Applicants should clearly explain how their project or field of study will promote the legacy and Core Values of César Chávez; how it will provide personal or cultural growth; and how it will provide or enhance a meaningful relationship between the student and his or her local community.
