This is Service Learning with EF
Forge a (literal) path in a national park. Get your hands dirty on an urban farm. Plant something. Start a conversation with a stranger. Help introduce an endangered species back into the wild. Band together. Swing a hammer. Sort school supplies for families in need. Taste a different food. Build a greenhouse. Serve a meal. Follow directions. Help others do the same. Get inspired by the kind of progress you can see, and the kind of change you can feel.
