CEE Award

Second Regional Award for successful Service-Learning practice

 

Aimed at pinpointing and acknowledging the work of educational institutions that are developing Service-Learning projects that promote active youth citizenship and integrate students’ curricular learning with Service-Learning actions to the benefit of the community.

We know that education quality does not simply imply transmitting academic content, but it demands training students in democratic participation, focusing on improving learning and the quality of life of the community.

The Regional Award Committee shall assess all the experiences submitted and shall provide feedback and suggestions on their progress and optimization.

To that end, International Organization “Interactive Open Schools” (further on MIOS) and partners of the Service-Learning Network for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE SL Network) with the support of Latin-American Centre for Solidarity Service-Learning (CLAYSS) invites all primary and secondary schools that are developing and conducting Service-Learning practice to participate in the Second Regional Award for Successful Service-Learning Practice.

 

THE AWARD IS AIMED AT:

  • Collecting and systematizing Service-Learning practices that allow students to broaden learning horizons and to commit themselves to transforming their communities jointly with other social actors.
  • Acknowledging the schools that better integrate students’ curricular learning with service actions aimed at improving the quality of life of their communities.
  • Creating visibility for the teachers who commit themselves to the implementation of a Service-Learning practice aimed at improving education quality and inclusion, which could lead to social transformation, and for the students whose educational trajectory is oriented towards active citizenship.
  • Promoting and disseminating a culture based on participation, service and citizen engagement.
  • Offering feedback on the experiences submitted and assessed, including technical support, bibliographic suggestions and training material.

 

 

We received 72 applications to the 2nd. Regional Service-Learning Award from the six participating countries: Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Kosovo, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia.

The national teams of evaluators will now assess the applications, and all applicants will be receiving news on the status of their application via email. The Award-giving ceremony will be held in Kosovo at the end of October.
