Join PSAYDN and the National Youth Leadership Center for an interactive workshop on service-learning. The two-day training – for afterschool, summer learning, 21st Century Community Learning Center staff, school administrators, early learning and K-12 educators and volunteers – will define service-learning and types of service-learning opportunities; describe the Investigation, Planning, Action, Reflection and Demonstration cycle and steps of the service-learning process; identify what makes a service-learning experience meaningful and effective; design and implement a service-learning plan to put into practice; and provide “train-the-trainer” methodology in order to take the learning back to instruct program staff or other educators.
The training will also provide an opportunity to highlight projects via social media conducted through nationally-recognized events such as Lights On Afterschool and National Summer Learning Day.
We often ask ourselves, “Why can’t these kids get along?” The primary role of the school-age practitioner is to teach social skills. We will discuss the whys and needs to teach social skills. Social skills will be broken down into seven skill clusters known as The Seven Cs.
Part 1 was held March 6.
