Newark Elementary School Students Showcase Their Service Learning Skills Today at NJIT

Bragaw Avenue School students displayed their projects designed to showcase their knowledge of the various issues that they have studied as part of their contributions to the school community today in the Campus Center Ballroom. During the school year, students in kindergarten to eighth grade selected topics of interest that they could study, became members in local, national and global programs and then developed strategies to help local residents. The projects are part of the school’s Academy of Service Learning and include some of the most pressing issues in today’s society. The ultimate goal of the program is to teach students to be participants in their communities and to take an active part in service to others.
