The Service Learning 101 Professional Development Workshop is hosted by the UNC Charlotte Urban Youth and Communities Minor program faculty and the Center for Adolescent Literacies. The workshop is for small teams from partner schools and, as space allows, teachers from other schools. Schools are invited to bring a five-member team of up to five teachers and school leaders to learn about implementing service learning to engage and support student learning at their schools. Participants will receive $100 stipends in addition to workshop materials, lunch, and certificates of participation from the Center for Adolescent Literacies.
Evan Goldberg, the Coordinator for Service-Learning, School Safety, Mock Trial and Civic Engagement at the Alameda County Office of Education, located in the east San Francisco Bay, will lead the workshop. Mr. Goldberg has managed a number of service-learning, school safety, and character education initiatives, including two School Community Violence Prevention grants, Project Heart, Head, Hands.
