Dive Deep with Service-Learning

“The Institute exceeded my expectations and fed my spirit in a way that will accelerate my impact. It offered a rare opportunity to connect to other educators and look at purpose and intention on a deeper level.”

Paula Cohen, Middle School Teacher
Los Angeles Unified School District

“I would absolutely recommend CWI’s Institute! I now have a direction in which to take my program. We are moving from a community service model toward service-learning. The facilitators’ understanding was strong, sensible, and practical.”
N. Elijah Silvin, Dean of Student Life,
Poly Prep School, Brooklyn, New York
