Schools Partnering with Families to Promote Service and Encourage Civic Responsibility

Students Volunteering for Others

Student learning and healthy youth development thrive when families work in partnership with schools and community organizations. Those collaborations can be especially powerful when they are built around service and civic engagement. Several Minnesota schools have already partnered with Doing Good Together™ to create a schoolwide focus on community outreach. Workshop participants will hear about the benefits of this collaborative approach to service, learn about the opportunities, events and celebrations that are critical to establishing a successful program, and receive the materials to get started. Such an initiative can provide students with the inspiration, skills and heart to become compassionate and community-focused leaders.
