SCHOOLS ENGAGE – Service Learning as a vehicle for fostering active citizenship is an Erasmus+ K2 project that runs from December 2020 to November 2022.
The SCHOOLS ENGAGE project aims to produce an innovative educational package for secondary education that builds on Service Learning (SL) as a pedagogical context for cultivating citizenship competences and promoting civic engagement, participation and common values. It aspires to enhance teachers’ professional development by supporting them to apply innovative teaching practices in their curricula. The project’s challenge is to intervene in secondary education. Therefore, this sector must increasingly be approached with a view of promoting and supporting the real-life testing and application of SL interventions in schools.
