Making Connections: Service Learning as a Dynamic Process
Service learning is often viewed as an isolated project, an aspiration to do good, and done outside of the classroom. Yet, the process of service learning offers more. When we consider the imperatives of our time – attaining equity, relieving poverty, protecting our planet, appreciating diversity – we can understand that service learning is a driving force for learning and action. As educators we aim to equip our students to meet the challenges in the future, when these challenges can’t wait. They rest at our doorstep.


What to do? Service learning provides a rich engaging framework to enliven academics, and to link us together. At all grade levels we can advance the ability of children and youth to identify authentic needs and develop meaningful responses. By applying their knowledge, they strengthen the acquisition of transferable skills and widen their perspectives.

During our time together, we will make connections with:
• The Sustainable Development Goals
• Classroom content
• Methods of inquiry
• Ways of Finding Out (that go beyond “google it”)
• Listening to Ourselves and Others
• Reflection that Matters

The emphasis will be on practical ideas you can use as we move toward a more just society.

Friday (8:30am-3pm)

Service Learning and Social Justice:
Building a program that creates community inside and out.

This workshop will explore the ways that a Service Learning program can implement community building and equity work into the structure of the program. Pulling from theory on Social Justice Youth Development, the presenter will share pedagogical practices and activities that work on creating spaces for students to dialogue about what justice looks like in the world. Through engaging in these practices within the community, students will be able to take those skills as they partner with community organizations.
