SAGE IN ACTION

Service Learning is one of the Five Pillars of SAGE. Once inspired, students are then given the opportunity to go out and make positive changes themselves. Examples of service learning are cultivating a community garden to provide produce for a community food bank, a painted mural to change hearts and minds, or meeting with local government officials to propose a new measure.

Students will learn the five steps of service learning: investigation, preparation, action, reflection, and demonstration. They will learn the difference between volunteerism and service learning, and why both are important aspects of civic engagement. Students will learn to draw on personal connections and skills, work with community organizations to address specific needs, work with writing prompts aimed at helping students consider personal changes they can make to challenge bias, exclusion, and injustice, and work ​with - not ​for - individuals or groups the service learning projects will support.
