I really like that “Students learn about the values of giving and service in the classroom, then go out and contribute to their own communities.” I did a lot of service learning projects in my classroom because I felt that I was incorporating academics with relevant real life experiences. Being involved in The League events are a way of doing this. I also had many students who were on government aid and receiving a lot of services so I felt this was one way to show them that they could be on the giving side also. In fact, this helped their self esteem and they felt like they had something to contribute to society.
I hope you will take the time to check out The Drive and see how you can get involved! Thanks for reading!
