Enriching Service Learning through Family Involvement

Family Volunteering

This presentation focuses on how families and service-learning providers together can support and nurture emerging service leaders. Participants receive simple, practical strategies and materials for (1) encouraging families to serve others; (2) educating parents about the benefits of service learning; (3) involving families in existing service-learning projects; and (4) building strong alliances between school, family and community to enrich service learning, increase academic achievement and create a culture of service.
