What We’re Reading Now: California Campus Compact’s Partnering in Tough Times: Service-Learning for Economic Vitality
California Campus Compact recently released its latest publication, Partnering in Tough Times: Service-Learning for Economic Vitality, based on the results and lessons of its Social Innovation Generation: California Recovery and Renewal Initiative, funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).
The Social Innovation Generation: California Recovery and Renewal Initiative was part of California Campus Compact’s three-year initiative from 2009 – 2012, which focused on catalyzing and mobilizing colleges and universities to aid in the state’s recovery and renewal through service, service-learning, and inventive solutions embedded in social entrepreneurship, micro-finance, and social investment. With support from CNCS, Learn and Serve America, six California universities received two-year grants to serve as lead institutions. Each developed service and service-learning projects themselves and engaged other colleges and universities in their local area related efforts. Together these campuses collaborated with more than 300 community organizations.
