COMMUNITY ECOSYSTEM EGIFT CARD
Invest in learners that are demonstrating how they explore the socio-economic indicators that define the health of their community’s resources as they complete their service-learning project(s).
- Learners must use our Community On Demand Condition Cards to develop an impact solution for a socio-economic condition within their community’s ecosystem.
- Learners must map the local resources they discover within their community’s ecosystem using the Community Ecosystem Mapping Grid and Health Assessment Worksheets.
- Learners must research and identify the groups that address the socio-economic indicators that positively and/or negatively impact their community’s ecosystem .
