HGRESA Consultative Assistance
HGRESA strives to promote Service Learning as an effective research-based strategy. For approximately 15 years, HGRESA received a Service Learning Grant to promote Service Learning in the area. Even though the grant is no longer available, many teachers are continuing to implement and/or use the service learning strategy.
Each year, we recognize SENIORS in the Heart of Georgia RESA area who meet the requirements of completing 50+ hours of documented service learning activities (not just community service). In the past, Seniors ahave been recognized at our Spring Awards Event for earning and documenting required number of hours. This information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and to email@example.com by April 23, 2021.
