Service learning enhances student connections to community.
At Colrain Central School, we take pride in our students work with the community. Our service learning program helps students to connect the concepts they learn in the classroom to concrete, real-world, community-based problems. It provides students with an opportunity to take ownership, identify resources and community problems from the source, and help to provide solutions. Our students become the problem-solvers.
Service learning can take shape in a variety of ways in the classroom, through structured support, and through establishing routines. As a result, teachers learn alongside their students to identifying local needs and creative problem solving. Our teachers regularly participate in professional learning opportunities with a service-learning focus.
We're always looking for community partners! Do you have a problem or project you would like our students to checkout? Want to learn more about our service learning program? Contact our Service Learning Coordinator Talia Miller by email or at (413) 624.3451 x220.
