FCPS Service Learning Information
Many thanks to Steven Myers, the Service Learning Resource Teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools, for speaking about FCPS’ service learning programming at last week’s club meeting!
Service learning involves students in authentic and meaningful service to their communities therefore developing their career and personal civic interests. This educational approach includes partnering with an agency (usually a non-profit or social service group) while learning theories in the classroom. The long term goal outside of potential career development is lifelong community engagement.
