A Unique Gathering of Educators

MAY 17-18, 2019, LOS GATOS, CA

Join a collective of like minded K-16 and community based educators, along with our facilitator, Community Works Institute (CWI) founder Joe Brooks, as we build a community of practice around using Place Based Service-Learning as a core teaching strategy.

Our work together will emphasize the Social and Emotional Learning, Sustainability, and Global Citizenship connections that we make when we use the community as the classroom. Enhance your approach to Environmental Education with strategies that engage students as active citizens. Learn and collaborate with inspired educators who value compelling, student centered projects that open doors to REAL and purposeful learning and relationships in the heart of the community. We learn best when we learn with each other. learn more
