Recognition from the CODiE Awards
Developing and assessing students’ social-emotional skills is a growing area of interest in U.S. schools as education leaders seek to educate the whole child and teach more than core curriculum requirements. Community service is one way to develop empathy, help students find potential career interests, and build a stronger connection with their community. Busy school administrators, however, may not encourage or require community service because of how difficult and time consuming it is to manage these programs. x2VOL not only makes it easier for schools and students to manage the process of student service but it also brings added social-emotional benefits because x2VOL requires students to reflect on their service. Through reflections, they make a more meaningful connection to the world around them.
