Center for Service Learning Leadership

DELTA (D-E Learning & Teaching Academy) Opportunities from D-E 360°:

Center for Service Learning Leadership (CSLL) at Dwight-Englewood School

A professional development experience for independent school educators to engage with the foundation, praxis and practice of Service Learning.

We’re excited to welcome CSLL co-directors, Jonathan Davis and Diego Duran-Medina to Dwight-Englewood School for Summer 2019 to offer their very successful program to educators in our region. Their Service Learning program and philosophy, and associated Service Week at Shorecrest in St. Petersberg, Florida, can serve as a living, learning lab for other independent schools. We’re pleased to have CSLL on campus with us this summer and invite you to join us in exploring service learning!
