Community Partners have agreed to support students and teachers through partnering with them on service learning projects. Community Partners can provide a variety of support such as:
1. Project ideas based on their knowledge of needs in our community.
2. They can sometimes provide expertise in a particular area. For example, some partners are experts in environmental stewardship, water conservation, and our local history.
3. Some partners provide resources for projects.
4. Some partners provide incentives to students for participating in a service learning project.
