    It was so amazing to meet Aya from the International School of Kigali in Rwanda and learn about her passion for mindful service and how it connects to intercultural competency. Her 4 pillars of mindful service would be a great starting point for any school designing a service learning program, or evaluating the impact of their partnerships. How might we engage as listeners, connect with communities from a place of equality, build relationships, establish trust and collaboratively design actions that have positive impact and develop reciprocal partnerships? Listen to find out.

    Dominique, Alithza & Martin are 3rd grade students at COJOWA in Cartagena, Colombia. In a recent unit, combining Spanish and Sociales, students collaborated and learned from local farmers at Granitos de Paz.  This reciprocal partnership involved students learning about what foods are growing locally in their community from the farmers and creating a system for members of their community to purchase directly from the local farmers, rather than buying imported foods with a higher carbon footprint. Other experts from the community also visited the class as guest speakers. This service learning project is a great example of how students can work collaboratively with a community partner to both learn from that community partner, and make meaningful contributions to their work.
