Orange County Public SchoolsDistrict Service Learning ProgramSpecial Initiative

Wendy L. Doromal

OCPS Service Learning Coordinator

The primary goal of the OCPS Service Learning Program is to provide opportunities for every OCPS student to participate in quality service-learning projects connected to curriculum and standards in collaboration with community partners to meet genuine school and community needs.
To institutionalize service learning in Orange County will need people in power and decision-makers to support the program not just in word, but financially. Both administrators and educators need to understand the benefits of service learning and how it contributes to academic success. We also need teachers to adopt service-learning as a means of teaching. Therefore, the initiative focuses on training, education, and providing seed money through mini-grants for service learning projects and expansion.
