Onward & Upward: Service-Learning Program Moving to New Partners
April 1, 2018
Since 1991, the Mayerson Foundation supported the work of area high schools in the encouragement, promotion, & development of service learning experiences. Many educators worked alongside us: bridging the cognitive and the affective through service, increasing empathy through relationship, and empowering students – and yourself – to act and say “YES! Something can be done about…” environmental justice, homelessness, hunger,clean water, education, racism, health & wellness, equity….
The list goes on. As that list goes on, so must this important work in a newly energized way.
The Mayerson Foundation will no longer be operating the Service Learning Program after the 2017-18 year; the work of the Foundation will continue through stewardship to the community. We are proud to pass the baton of the most transformational program elements to a network of impassioned and capable partners outlined in our letter to the community found here.
The community joined April 17 in appreciation for those who have and will lead service learning: nonprofits, teachers, and program partners! An Evening of Appreciation: Onward & Upward!
