Community Based Learning
These courses challenge students to link the theories learned in the classroom to the realities in the field by working in the community.
The Ware Institute has forged relationships with community partners, both locally and globally, in order to provide a wide range of community-based learning experiences for students who have a strong desire to help make a difference in their school, their community, and their world.
I invite you to browse our web pages, visit our office, call or email the Ware Institute to learn more about our local and global programs, and volunteer opportunities.
