Academically based student engagement in P12 schools integrates service or research with academic learning.
These experiences can take on many forms - from Service Learning Courses to after-school volunteer opportunities.
SERV Courses with P12 schools
PPE seeks to support UD’s mission to integrate civic engagement into student academic and career goals by assisting in the expansion of service learning courses partnering with P12 schools.
Academically based community engagement helps to build UD’s students' knowledge of and skills for civic and social responsibility.
Courses with a service component allow UD students experience authentic and real-world problem solving in P12 schools. As complex organizations with dynamic challenges, local schools and school districts offer opportunities for a wide variety of disciplines to apply their knowledge and expertise. These mutually beneficial partnerships enrich student learning spanning the entire P16 community.
Student Mentors and Tutors
Do you have students who are passionate about their program of studies? Would your program like to establish a service-oriented mentor program with a local school to share this energy with P12 students?
PPE can help connect you with local schools to establish or grow an after school tutoring and mentoring program. When UD students mentor or tutor local youth, they offer more than just the exchange of content knowledge - they offer opportunities for local youth to connect with and establish relationships with UD students, build social capital and learn from a student about the UD experience.
