Community Works Institute's 2020 FALL Institute


Don't miss Community Works Institute's (CWI) Fall Institute, a unique opportunity for deep learning, collaboration, and networking in a design lab atmosphere, with like minded K-16 and community based educators from across the U.S. Develop high impact curriculum and programs that engage students, using the community as the classroom. The Institute provides a unique opportunity to understand why Place Based Service-Learning works, how it works, and how to use it most effectively with students.

"The work that I did at CWI's Virtual Institute is already having an impact on my work as an educator as it's put me in the 'purpose-driven mindset'. I truly appreciated all of the practical, hands-on activities that I can share with my students this year as we focus more heavily on social and emotional learning."
—Kristen Harris, Teacher
