INVS 2919/EDUC 2919: Renewing Democracy in Communities and Schools is an engaging service-learning course that explores democracy, education, and social change. In addition to meeting on-campus weekly, INVS 2919/EDUC 2919 students empower K-12 students to identify their roles as democratic citizens through their participation in Public Achievement. An international civic engagement initiative, Public Achievement seeks to expand the leadership of young people in communities around the world. INVS2919/EDUC2919 students serve as “coaches” and are responsible for guiding K-12 students as they create projects that seek to address public problems, including immigration, poverty, global warming, teen depression, domestic violence, and animal abuse.
