Student Service Learning (SSL)

FOR STUDENTS/FAMILIES:

SSL Opportunity:

New SSL Program: Youth Facing Racism

The Washington Center for International Education is offering a new SSL program, Youth Facing Racism. This is a four-week program for high school students engaging American experiences of race, ethnicity, and identity.

This dynamic SSL program includes eight online small group discussions as well as a service project completed at Corhaven Graveyard, a historical burial ground for African-Americans who were enslaved in Shenandoah County, Virginia.

This program has been designed especially for high school students with an international background (ESOL or otherwise), but non-ESOL students and students without an international background are VERY welcome to join as well.

Online discussion groups start weeks of October 5 and October 12. For information and to register, see the Montgomery County Volunteer Center website here or the WCIE website here. Email with questions to communityservice@washingtoncie.org

For more information about WCIE, see http://washingtoncie.org/.

The Apprenticeship Program at KID Museum is modeled on successful mentor and explainer programs in world-renowned science centers across the country that cultivate youth as facilitators for a comprehensive educational experience. KID Museum Apprentices: 
  • Work closely with Museum Educators to facilitate hands-on programming for children ages 4 – 14.
  • Train to teach STEM and art-related activities, and learn how to interact with museum visitors. 
  • Have the opportunity to enroll in professional development sessions at the museum, in various disciplines (such as woodworking or 3D printing).

The deadline to apply for the Fall 2020 session is September 18, and the semester runs from October 1, 2020-January 30th, 2021. Full details and the application can be found by visiting this link. Application
