Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) Act. No. 569.

This bill improves and provides new support for national service and service-learning programs administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, including Learn and Serve America--the only federal program dedicated to funding service-learning activities in local schools and communities.
H.R. 1388 - Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) Act

"We applaud the passage of the GIVE Act (H.R. 1388) and are grateful for the commitment, bipartisan spirit and collaboration with which this bill was created, " National Service-Learning Partnership Executive Director Nelda Brown said. "Nearly 100 service-learning organizations in schools and communities expressed their support for this landmark legislation. We are confident this bill will play a vital role in giving more young people the opportunity to learn and serve as part of their lives and educations."
