POCIS and EBISA Service Learning Symposium

EBISA and POCIS Service Learning Symposium Friday, November 9 Mills College 1-4:30pm (lunch begins at 11:30. Food provided)

How Does Your School Define Service? Who Does It Serve? How does your school define service? What does it look like? What do you call it: community service, service learning, outreach? Who are you serving? What are you teaching? What roles should private schools have with the public? How do you ensure your students are making clear distinctions between charity and solidarity? How is your school using service to educate students, families, and staff? How is your school’s service efforts fostering safe, equitable and inclusive learning environments for its students and communities? EBISA and POCIS are pleased to collaborate on this symposium of discussion and dialogue exploring service in our schools.
