Since 2020, virtual service experiences have become increasingly popular. This handbook teaches educators how to move service-learning to a virtual space, while still engaging with students' interests.
Learn how service-learning can help you meet content goals as well as address social emotional learning using a four stage framework, investigation cycle and research based standards of quality service-learning practice that ensure young people will grow as leaders and as active citizens. Be ready to take a step to weaving service-learning into your unit plans!
Join us for this youth-led, youth-centered introduction to Service-Learning! After this session, you will have a fully-stocked toolkit for addressing genuine community needs.
Born out of a desire to prepare young people for careers that are both local and also future-oriented, the Satellite Center was built in 2005, and opened after a six-month delay post-Hurricane Katrina. Located in Luling, Louisiana, the school embodies more than state-of-the-art technology. It is dedicated to “Building a Better You” – as its tagline reads, for high school juniors and seniors. As such, teachers are “facilitators” and students are “team members”, reflecting an ethos of collaboration and youth leadership designed to support graduates as they apply their skills and passions to community needs.
Learn how to leverage social media to ensure that you can thoughtfully and effectively share what you've learned from your project with the greatest audience possible.
