SERVE 2 UNITE CURRICULUM

The Serve 2 Unite curricula is a proven means of establishing a healthy sense of identity, purpose, and belonging by engaging in solution-based problem solving, global connection, service learning, and artistic expression. Because the program is based in culturally responsive practices, we encourage students to take on the role of educators, and educators to take on the role of students. This allows a relationship of mutual learning that goes far beyond the classroom.

 

THE FIVE PILLARS OF S2U CURRICULUM

SOLUTION-BASED

Because we care about the social-emotional health of our students.

 

GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT

Because we exist in an interdependent global community.

 

SERVICE LEARNING

Because service is the universal language of love.

 

ARTISTIC EXPRESSION

Because art is an evidenced-based solution to trauma.


CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE

Because diversity is our greatest strength, and students engage much better from an asset-based, student-driven learning approach that embraces their native language, experience, and culture.
