Students nationwide return to school over the next few weeks. If you’re a teacher, school faculty member, or education professional who’s looking to add meaningful service opportunities and a better understanding of service-learning to your school, consider what NYLC has to offer.
From September 2019 to March 2020, NYLC will be hosting a series of online webinars. These webinars will provide an enhanced understanding of service-learning, and cover subjects such as:
These webinars will be presented via Zoom and available for all members of the Service-Learning Network to view afterward.
NYLC has also partnered with 9/11 Day to bring service-learning to schools. With informative toolkits for students and facilitators alike, your school can unite on September 11th and participate in a day of service that brings our nation together.
Additionally, teenagers nationwide will be driving to and from school once again, which means that teen driver safety is a priority. NYLC's teen driver safety program Project Ignition has a free toolkit that provides a curriculum guide for service-learning projects promoting teen driver safety and building a culture of responsible, educated teen drivers.
NYLC also hosts Lift: Raising the Bar for Service-Learning Practice, a collection of videos explaining each of the K-12 Service-Learning Standards. This collection of informative, engaging video guides to service-learning follows three schools through their service-learning journeys, and provides a blueprint for any school that wishes to bring service-learning into the classroom.
If you want to take the next step towards integrating service-learning into your school, join the Service-learning network, and gain access to NYLC's upcoming webinars, virtual networking services, and a free subscription to The Leader to keep you up-to-date on service-learning efforts worldwide.
