导演的一封信

January 18, 2021

亲爱的9、10、11年级的家长们:

Teach2Serve, 这是体育电竞盘app学校开发的体验式学习项目, 是为了教育, train, and inspire high school students who want to bring about positive social change in their world. Students who complete this program will graduate from high school equipped with an effective set of leadership skills. This program is consistent with the values and respect for all humankind that 电竞app School has always promoted and puts us at the forefront of public service education for high school students.

该项目的第一年包括课程, workshops, community service, 暑期实习机会, and the development and execution of a group project to address an environmental or social problem that they care about. The program was designed for students beginning 10th or 11th grade in the fall, but applications will be considered from 电竞app students in any grade. 在第一年公共服务证书课程结束时, students may apply to be Teach2Serve Fellows and spend a second and maybe even a third year completing a capstone project that benefits a community in need or the environment. In this program, 学生在实践中学习,获得团队建设, fundraising, public speaking, 创造性解决问题, 以及项目开发技能.

We encourage you and your teen to peruse the Teach2Serve page on the 电竞app website to learn more about the program and past projects. I will hold student and parent information sessions about the program in February and applications are due on April 12, 2021. Any student excited about the opportunity to learn and apply the skills needed to bring about social change is encouraged to attend an information session, fill out an application 或联系我了解更多信息. 这是一个长期的承诺, 虽然这个项目没有学术先决条件, students should be motivated to engage in service learning and willing to work hard. I believe the students will be more than rewarded for their efforts.

Sincerely,

Teach2Serve导演, Diane Downs

They are asked to develop and practice an elevator pitch so they can succinctly communicate what they hope to accomplish with their project.
