Project Good: A Toolkit for World Changing
Often, service learning is well intentioned but devolves to students counting volunteer hours to complete an assignment. It lacks student agency, ownership and passion. But what if it was different? What would it look like to have a service program that inspired students to learn, serve, create, and develop a toolkit to make ripples of good in the world? What would it look like if students didn’t get on the bus, but instead got in the driver’s seat of their experience?
