“The Institute was invaluable to my practice. It helped me understand service-learning
in a much more sophisticated and nuanced way. I’ve gained the knowledge to improve
my existing projects, to inform likeminded educators at my school, and support my administration
as it seeks to make a more institutional commitment to this type of teaching.”
—Emily DeMarchena, The Hackley School, New York
