Ida B Malloy, Coordinator of Civic Engagement, The Baldwin School
Service-learning and civic engagement create images in the minds of faculty and students. For many institutions is has become a required component. For some, service and various types of engagement are important and help to create a new generation of volunteers, agents of change and philanthropist. Although service and civic engagement are important to many, for some it is a bitter pill to swallow. For those who do not enjoy service or any sort of engagement, it must be questioned if they are needed or should they be required to participate.
This workshop will offer approaches to guiding students through service, as well as teaching team building for schools that have service-learning opportunities. Critical questions that will be considered include: 1) Why perform service? 2) What is the expectation of the school's service model? 3) What are the students learning? 4) What is the impact on the community and the people? 5) Is the project sustainable?
Some of the areas of focus will include:
Charity work vs. engagement
Creating a service model that informs the learner
Better understanding of race, priviledge, culture, community and authentic connections
Engaging in service that does not harm or hinder a community, but uplifts and empowers
