Community Service Training in Salta

A group of 20 English teachers from 10 Binational Centers participated in community service training on June 4 & 5 in the city of Salta.

The training provided Microscholarship Access teachers with more tools and different strategies for the assessment, design, implementation and evaluation of service-learning projects. Future projects will be aimed at promoting volunteerism and encouraging engagement of high school students in the classroom.

The training was provided by CLAYSS (Latin American Center for Learning and Solidarity Service), an NGO that is devoted to the growth of fraternal and a participative culture in Latin America through the development of community service-learning projects.

The Access Program was established in Argentina in 2009 with more than 1800 students having received scholarships to learn English, increase their knowledge of American culture and participate in community service projects.
