“In a month-long summer school course, middle school students will learn to embrace their role as a member of a community by designing and implementing a service learning project for a local charity. Students will ride bikes to The Community Space and learn how it puts community into practice by helping people share resources, ideas and experiences. Students will learn leadership, teamwork and compassion through games and scavenger hunts. Throughout the course, students will be given increasingly more control over how they plan their day. By the end, they will run the entire program as a group, without instructor support.”
