for Community Partners
|ELOs are programs which provide all students with a non-traditional educational experience that is interest based, designed with rigor, intended to address personal relevance, and naturally builds critical relationships between students and their community.
The success of ELOs depends on community involvement. Students involved with ELOs in their communities are not simply going to an after-school job or working on projects in isolation. They are engaged in experiential learning (learning that occurs when students are placed in a situation where they think and interact, learn in and from a real-world environment) and applying that learning in a meaningful way to make a contribution to their world. Get involved in student learning by providing experiential opportunities, everything from job shadowing to one-on-one mentorships.
As a community partner, you will be helping to provide students with valuable real-world learning experiences, engaging them with the community, and perhaps helping to form tomorrow’s community leaders.
