Changing the World Starts in the Classroom
What happens when you combine WE’s year-round service learning program with the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program? The chance for students to apply classroom learning to real-world situations and discover their power to change the world.
A Pilot Program to Incorporate Service Learning into AP® Courses
AP® with WE Service is a new pilot program designed in exclusive partnership between the College Board and WE, through our WE family of organizations. Launching in September 2016, the pilot will integrate WE’s internationally-recognized service-based Learning Framework and resources into six AP® courses—Computer Science A, Environmental Science, European History, Human Geography, Spanish Language and Culture, and Studio Art: 2-D Design—enabling students to apply content and skills to real-life social issues and challenges through innovation, creativity and hard work. Students who complete the program will earn a service recognition on their transcripts.Through the foundation and outcomes of the WE Learning Framework, students explore the root causes of pressing issues like hunger, poverty and lack of education. They also plan at least one local and one global action to improve their community and the world.LEARN MORE
