Service-Learning Programs for Young People

Spring & Summer
CEP offers weeklong field study
programs for 9th-12th graders during the academic year, and
intensive, three-week service-learning courses for 7th-12th
graders during the summer. CEP programs explore complex social
issues through academic study, meaningful service work, and meetings
with community leaders, and help teach young people how to apply their
skills and abilities to pressing social issues in their own
communities. This year, CEP will offer programs in Chicago,
Baltimore, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco, covering a
wide variety of topics, including urban poverty, education,
homelessness, public health, politics, leadership, and social
change. Learn more
We are looking for outstanding teachers from public and private
schools and universities, service-learning practitioners, other
education, youth development and nonprofit professionals, and graduate
and undergraduate students.
Instructional, residential, and administrative positions are
available, ranging from one-week to seven-week sessions in the
spring or summer. Staff generally receive a cash stipend,
room and board, and training in service-learning and experiential
education. However, the biggest payoff comes from the
opportunity to work with bright, motivated students, build community
with passionate, dynamic colleagues, and gain valuable experience
educating young people about civic engagement and social
responsibility. Learn more

positions or to apply online,
