Service Learning Portal
The Office of Service Learning and Mentorships is compiling a database that will provide students options for service learning opportunities all over the county! Students can volunteer at business/community partner organizations to gain extra experience and service learning hours.
The ultimate goal of our service learning program is to help students become an integral part of their community and help them understand and appreciate the role of service in a democratic society. Using the Service Learning Portal, students can volunteer with organizations outside of the classroom to improve their academic skills. While serving, students apply what they learn in school to real-world issues; they then reflect on their experience to reinforce the link between their service and their learning. Through this database, our partners can post service learning opportunities for our students and our students can search opportunities for which to apply.
The Office of Service Learning and Mentorships has identified business and community organizations that will post opportunities and will pilot the portal in the 2017 - 2018 school year at South River, Southern, and Arundel High Schools.
The Service Learning Portal will be available for all students who attend AACPS high schools to use sometime in the next two years. We at the Service-Learning Office are excited about this new opportunity for community engagement and student growth!
