Degrees of Impact Symposium

The National Network of Schools in Partnership and The Hockaday School's Institute for Social Impact are presenting Degrees of Impact to provide educators an opportunity to connect and consider emerging practices and trends for community engagement and civic and partnership programs. The two-day event will focus on engaged, hands-on learning opportunities that will prepare students for their futures by honing their critical character skills and preparing them to be leaders in their communities, workplace, and society.
Attendees will gain a greater understanding of the ways in which community and civic engagement can be integrated into a PK-12 curriculum as well as leave with an action plan to enhance this work on campus.
