Service-Learning Summer Institutes: Choose Your Location

Posted in Professional Development, Service-Learning, Summer Institutes by KIDS Consortium on May 6, 2011

KIDS Consortium’s flagship professional development opportunity for K-12 educators is the four-day Service-Learning Summer Institute.

Last year, we held four incredibly successful four-day Summer Institutes. For the first time ever, a KIDS Consortium Summer Institute was held in Florida. This year, we’re adding another “first”: Minnesota.

Yes, whether you teach in Florida, Minnesota, New York, Massachusetts, or Maine—or near any one of those—there’s a KIDS Consortium Summer Institute near you.

The KIDS Consortium Summer Institute was the very best course I’ve taken in many years! I am totally prepared to lead a service-learning project in my classroom or school and I also have many tools that I can use every day.

What’s special about this program?

The Institute was by far the best teacher conference I have ever been to. Transformative. KIDS facilitators are fantastic. Well worth the trip from Georgia!
