COVID-19 has brought a host of changes to schools across the country and throughout the world. The uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and the transition to distance or modified learning has created challenges.
However, during this time, students have been diligent in recognizing the needs of their communities and serving faithfully. Service has never been more important and the goal at x2VOL is to support you and your students during this time and beyond. That is why we created a brand new E-Guide: Service During COVID-19: An E-Guide for Service Leaders.
In this E-Guide you will learn more about:
- The importance of service during this time
- The impact service has on student development
- How other service leaders are modifying their service programs and ideas for how you can modify your service program to account for COVID-19
- Virtual and low contact service ideas for your students
Engaging students in service during this time can be difficult. There are a lot of barriers to overcome, but service has never been more important.
Students can get creative with their skills and circumstances to serve and volunteer in creative ways. Not only are they making a difference and learning the value of service, but they are able to think critically about their talents and skillsets and how to use those to benefit someone else. This creative problem solving and critical thinking is a valuable learning experience students can have during this time as well.
x2VOL makes it easy for students to log their hours and write meaningful reflections on service. Are you ready to remove the burden of service tracking? Or learn about how x2VOL can support you and your students? Check out our demo to learn more and reach out to our team with any questions.
