Lawn and Yard Care would be your Search the List category for this sort of provider.

You could check for off-the-cuff type lawn care providers on Craigslist or local ad sheets or websites, and some college placement offices maintain lists of college students looking for casual labor opportunities - but bear in mind that sort of vendor will nto be insured and you risk being considered as a direct employer rather than someone contracting with a company, so your liability and potential risk of being found responsible for tax withholding, unemployment and disability insurance, etc is far more than if you go with a licensed and insured provider.

Also, bear in mind, unless you talking on-site disposal, most students are not going to be equipped to haul away the leaves for off-site disposal. And if they just dump them in the street at the curb (unless that is legal disposal in your town) guess who will be held liable for that.
