How K12 Encourages Our Kids to Give Back
Kids: bouncing off the walls, constantly on the go, seemingly always on overdrive. The energy of kids is a resource oft not tapped into, particularly in the realm of service-learning and giving back to the community. Where, you ask, can your child find the inspiration and support to start or continue their journey in service? Here at K12, there are courses and clubs offered to teach your kid more about service and inspire them to start their own projects!
Here are some courses for your consideration:
PRJ010: Service Learning, a high school elective course
In this course students are taught how to identify community needs and select personally meaningful projects, amongst other useful skills. Finally, students are able to design and conduct a learning service project of their own!
HST222: Contemporary World Issues, a high school elective course
This course allows students to familiarize themselves with current issues within our society and receive a deeper insight into how they can actively involve themselves. Furthermore, it can help them decipher the specific type of service they are interested in.
BUS040: Introduction to Entrepreneurship 1 & BUS050: Introduction to Entrepreneurship 2, high school elective courses
Say your energetic child truly enjoys the service learning he or she begins and is ready to start an organization of their own focused around their passion – these courses on entrepreneurship can provide a basis on the ins and outs of how starting one’s own business works.
