Fall course: INVS 2919

INVS 2919 is an engaging service-learning course that explores democracy, education, and social change, and explores how the three interact. Students are challenged to consider the concepts of identity, power, privilege, and diversity in education and other public institutions. INVS 2919 helps students identify their roles as democratic citizens who are capable of taking action, through the practice of small group democracy in diverse communities.

The Seminar meets on Mondays from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. There are multiple options for the time of the practicum: Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30 pm at Columbine Elementary School in Boulder or Fridays from 10:30 to 11:25 am; 12:05 to 1:00 pm; 1:05 to 2:00 pm; or 2:05 to 3:00 pm at Centaurus High School in Lafayette.

The practicum is a Public Achievement program, which is an international service-learning program that expands the leadership potential of youth in communities around the globe. Developed in 1990 at the University of Minnesota, PA (as its known) focuses on the most basic concepts of citizenship, democracy and public work.

The program draws on the talents and desires of ordinary people to build a better world and to create a different kind of politics and develops a generation of future leaders capable of making positive change in local, regional and national settings.

INVS 2919 students serve as “Coaches” helping teams to carry out and learn from their tasks, acting as a guide and facilitator as elementary or high school students create projects that address and confront community issues, such as racism, teen depression, immigration reform, substance abuse or funding for our schools.

And as long as Americorps gets funded next year, you can earn an education award  of over $1000!  If you are interested in innovative ways of engaging youth and learning about the education system this is your class!
