Service Learning w/GenerationOn

Join us for this FREE half-day session, which illustrates the difference between service projects and service learning in k-12 grades and how to incorporate service-learning and philanthropy education into your curriculum. Presented by Beth Smith, generationOn Indiana Consultant, and Lisa Crick, generationOn Indiana NE Field Rep and school counselor at West Noble Elementary.

generationOn Indiana is a grant funded program  facilitated by the IASP (Indiana
Association of School Principals) and the IMLEA (Indiana Middle Level Education
Association) to support and assist educators and youth development professionals in Indiana with the FREE service and service-learning resources on the generationOn.org website and the FREE philanthropy education and service-learning lessons and resources on the learningtogive.orgwebsite.

The generationOn website provides programs, tools and resources to engage kids and teens in service and volunteering.  The service-learning process takes students through the stages of Investigation, Preparation, Action, Reflection, Demonstration and Evaluation.  Learn about the IPARDE Process, a research-based teaching and learning strategy that engages youth in service to meet learning objectives and address real-world issues.

Workshop
Mindful Leadership Series

Administrators will answer four key leadership questions over the course of this series. What are my leadership preferences? How do I lead critical conversations? How do I accomplish my mission? How do I lead for transformation? Morning sessions will focus on examining the content around these four key questions. In the afternoon, we will break out into smaller groups for guided activities and conversation with peers. These sessions will be facilitated by Dr. Brad Oliver who serves as Director of Collaborative Solutions at The Summit. Prior to joining The Summit in 2015, Dr. Oliver served as Associate Professor and former Dean in the School of Educational Leadership at Indiana Wesleyan University. Dr. Oliver has been an educational leader in Indiana for more than 20 years, serving as a classroom teacher, principal, and central office administrator in the school communities of Noblesville, Twin Lakes (Monticello, IN), and Muncie. Dr. Oliver is a past member of the Indiana Professional Standards Advisory Board and the Indiana State Board of Education.
