Apart from being a friend in the classroom, students also need to realise the many ways in which they can be a friend to those in their community. At ACORN we seek to open their eyes to an awareness of their neighbours and show them how they can make a postive impact.
The key objective of this module is to turn empathy into action. Through the 3Rs (Ready, Render, Reflect) students are given a rounded view of Service Learning which goes beyond meeting the needs around them. Most importantly, we believe in matching the strengths of the students with the right kind of needs they can meet. This then inspires them to go beyond doing and into meaningful learning.
