Service-Learning For Leaders Course Registration Now Available

The Alameda County Office of Education has partnered with Cal State East Bay to offer Service-Learning for Leaders during the winter academic quarter each year. Designed as an elective in the administrative credential program, this course focuses on integrating service-learning with school site leadership and campus wide reform initiatives. The course is also open to service-learning practitioners in leadership positions and hosts a number of aspiring service-learning coordinators, professional developers and non-profit staff each year.

The course is highly interactive and teaches the principles of high-quality service-learning. Highlights from 2009 included a panel of high school students engaged in service-learning, a session at the Alameda County Community Food Bank highlighting service-learning opportunities from a panel of social service agencies, a presentation of recent civic engagement research by Joe Kahne, and a session with Julie Chavez Rodriguez, Program Director for the Chavez Foundation.

This year’s class will meet six Wednesdays January-March (1/13, 1/27, 2/3, 2/10, 2/24, 3/3) from 4:30-7:30 PM at the Alameda County Office of Education.

Visit CalState East Bay to enroll.
