Hands-On Service learning is comprised of 5 educational areas; Physics & Math, Writing/ literature/ Speech, sciences/Medical & technology, Media & Arts and Business/ finance.
Hands-On Service Learning Program Goals and Target Population
Our Hands-On service Learning Program enrolls 250 participants from January 10th to December20th, with an expected 10 to 20 % yearly increase in enrollment. Our target enrollment for college/university is 140, which include student enrollees from Miami-Dade College, Florida international University, Nova University, American Advanced Technicians Institute & Florida National University. Our program is focused to provide an engaging service learning experience which will help college/university student participants further their education by participating in the development & implementation of our projects, as well as through civic engagement. Our target enrollment for high school students is 70. The remaining 40 participants will be enrolled from local Middle & Elementary Schools. Supplemental education through service learning & civic engagement is great for High School, middle & Elementary Students & can help direct them in a path of interest which we believe will assist them in choosing a career path. More than 30 community projects will be completed from January 10th to December20th, which will range from community beautification projects in distressed communities, proving food & basic needs to underprivileged people. Projects will be implemented on a monthly basis.
