CWI's Summer EAST Institute provide a unique opportunity to understand why service-learning works, how it works, and how to use it most effectively
with your students. Join us for a transformative professional learning experience that will reshape the way you view the relationship between learning, teachers, and the community. Connecting our students to community focused work that builds understanding and creates common purpose is crucial to building strong and socially just communities.

A COLLABORATIVE LEARNING and DESIGN LAB

Service-Learning is our core strategy in a larger effort to connect and involve students in authentic learning experiences centered around real issues and needs in their own local communities. Our work at the Institute focuses on exploring characteristics of sustainable communities, in seeking to intentionally connect students to a sense of place—their place—in ways that will inform their experience with diversity, social action and service. We emphasize student voice as a key component in fully engaging students. We stress real reciprocity, authentic and complimentary relationships, as a core part of the program design process. The Institute is a collaborative learning laboratory that stresses developing a sense of place, creating compelling purpose, and an understanding of sustainability as inherent parts of high quality service-learning experiences.
