WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Each year, our Summer EAST and WEST Institute participants include a highly diverse group of K-16 teachers, administrators, from schools large and small—independent and public—along with community based educators and program leaders—from across the U.S. and around the world. The Institutes are appropriate for veterans to "beginners".
OUR APPROACH TO SERVICE-LEARNING

We see service-learning as a crucial piece in a larger effort to connect and engage students with real world issues. Our approach is to first consider place as the context, with service-learning as the strategy, and sustainable communities as the goal.

“I would absolutely recommend CWI’s Institute. I now have a direction to take my program. We are moving from a community service model toward service-learning. I’ve gained confidence that we should move in this direction. Joe's understanding was strong, sensible, and practical.”
N. Elijah Sivin, Teacher / Dean of Student Life
Poly Prep School, Brooklyn, New York

WE ALSO PROVIDE LOCAL ON-SITE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
CWI will work with your school or organization to create high impact local professional development sessions, or a site based version of our Summer Institutes. Local faculty training and planning events are customized to fit each individual site's needs. More information on CWI professional development opportunities is available here. email CWI
