presented by Franny Sharpe, Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence | Recorded April 13, 2017 | 48 minutes
Service learning and civic engagement activities can provide young people with big benefits on almost every level of youth development. Studies show that youth who take part in these activities can see improvement in their academic outcomes, social-emotional skills and their sense of connectedness to their community. Not only that, service learning and civic engagement activities and projects are often the most memorable (and fun!) of any out-of-school-time program!
In this one-hour webinar you can learn how to easily implement service learning and civic engagement projects in your program. Learn how youth voice and choice can create fun and meaningful activities that will connect youth with their community and your program. Gain practical guidance on how to find and execute projects, and how to model civic engagement values and behavior. Most importantly – learn how youth can have fun, make a difference, and create connections to their community!
