North Carolina Service-Learning Coalition Fall Workshop for PK-20 Educators
Featuring: Sanjli Gidwaney of Design for Change, USA

Are you an educator who FEELS students need to be more engaged in their education and community? Do you IMAGINE a way to make it better? Would you like to DO something about it? Come SHARE your story and gain tools to empower your students to design solutions to issues they care about in their communities.

The fall NCSLC workshop is offered in partnership with Design for Change, a global movement of educators and youth who are using the tools of design thinking to create solutions to issues in their communities. The Design for Change process is creative, fun, and empowering for all involved. The half-day workshop will walk educators and students through the Design for Change process so you leave ready to use it in your own community. The event will also provide an excellent regional service-learning networking opportunity for educators and students throughout North Carolina.
