My students are working towards improving their academics and lifestyle through a smaller environment that provides support in vocational opportunities. We hope that every student in our school can end the year with a completed student portfolio including a resume, service learning opportunities, career explorations assignments, etc.
My students require and deserve an education that goes beyond the classroom by giving them access to activities and experiences to lead them to success when they graduate.
Our students need the support and opportunities to enhance their personal experiences and vocational qualities. They are placed in this program to enhance their learning, including emotional and vocational. We strive to promote learning experiences that go beyond the classroom walls and give them community based connections to continue growing and giving in this area. Giving them access to these opportunities allows for better success when they are ready to transition out of school and into the real-world.
As part of a service learning project, my students decided to help end homelessness by creating and distributing homeless care packages throughout our community. These resources will all be packaged by my students to create 20-30 homeless care packages and then distributed to those in our community who are in need.
This service learning project will ultimately affect the community, as well as my students by giving them the opportunity to learn the importance of giving back.
My students will be able to add this service learning project to their portfolios. They will also build vocational skills that will help them in the future.
