ECSL members gathered this April at our annual spring meeting held at Turning Point School. This year’s theme was “Engagement in Action,” an Expo that allowed attendees to learn about some of the service learning programs brought to life at our member schools. Expo presentations included: Los Angeles Human Trafficking, Community Youth Partnership: Connecting our Students with the Community, Protecting the Lungs of our Planet, Garden Collaboration, and an Intergenerational Writers Workshop.
Along with hearing about these exciting programs, participants were given a chance to share about and reflect on the service at their schools in the 2013-2014 year. The above word cloud is an exciting visual representation of some of the work at ECSL member schools!
This compilation speaks to the power of service learning. It highlights the dedication of our members. It may spark an interest for your 2014-15 service learning curriculum. We invite you to take part in the connections, network, support, reflection and inspiration that ECSL provides service learning practitioners each school year. We look forward to seeing you at our fall meeting!
