Looking for a meaningful experience working with local youth? Interested in youth empowerment and education reform?  If yes, contact verveer@colorado.edu to register for INVS/EDUC 2919: Renewing Democracy in Communities and Schools.  A practicum course, INVS/EDUC 2919 invites undergraduates to work in teams of two or three to support local  K-12 students as they identify and address salient community issues, including bullying, domestic violence, global warming, youth homelessness, immigration, school funding, teen pregnancy, teen substance abuse, and texting and driving.

The following section of the course, which has been approved for the Education Minor  and meets the Human Diversity Core requirement, is open:

Section 802 will meet on campus on Mondays from 2:55-4:25 p.m.

Students, who enroll in INVS/EDUC 2919, will also be required to support local K-12 youth at one the following times:

Wednesdays, 3:30-4:30 p.m. at Pioneer Elementary School in Lafayette (one seat remaining) Thursdays, 4:00-5:00 p.m. at Casey Middle School in North Boulder (one seat remaining)

Other practicum and course sections are now full.

The course, which provides CU undergraduates with a meaningful opportunity to apply acquired skills and knowledge in school-based settings, has emerged as a favorite among CU students.  Enrollment for the course is controlled, thus students will need to contact Instructor and Public Achievement Director Elaina Verveer at verveer@colorado.edu for more information as well as to be enrolled.  This course is open to ALL CU undergraduates.
