RFFK participated in the first FCPS Service Learning Fair at West Potomac HS on January 12. The purpose of the fair was to introduce students to local non-profits with whom they might establish a service learning project. Different from service “hours,” or volunteer time that all students must complete, service learning offers an enriched, authentic learning experience that meets a community need, forming a deeper connection that resonates long after the service is complete.
Students presented RFFK with a variety of interests from sports to nursing to working with kids, all of which can tie into a service learning project benefiting the work we do in the community. If you have a student with an interest in exploring a service learning opportunity with us, please contact us, firstname.lastname@example.org.
