Designers for Learning: A new Call for Volunteers is open

From: Jennifer Maddrell, Designers for Learning <jmaddrell>

Our next service-learning Call for Volunteers is now open! View this in your browser.
Call for Volunteers: We are excited to announce the Call for Volunteers for the next 15-week service-learning project facilitated by Designers for Learning, an organization that coordinates volunteer service-learning opportunities for instructional design students who seek to gain experience creating instruction, training programs, and other types of performance improvement solutions for nonprofits and other social enterprises. We are accepting applications from students who are enrolled in college instructional design programs and would like to volunteer as part of a 12-person cohort for the upcoming fall 2014 semester.

Project Description: As outlined in the project description, the focus of this service-learning project is the design of open educational resources for adult basic education. While the outcome of this project will support the missions of many organizations, those selected to participate on this service-learning project will be volunteers of Grace Centers of Hope, a faith-based outreach to homeless and disadvantaged individuals and families. Grace Centers of Hope provides a full recovery and rehabilitation campus for homeless men, women, and children who have been abused or addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, including a one-year residency program for adult male and female clients recovering from drug, alcohol, or other challenging issues. Clients in the Grace Centers of Hope residency program who have not earned a high school diploma (or equivalent) are required to take in-house adult basic education classes to prepare for the General Educational Development test in order to stay in the program.

As a follow up to the pilot service-learning project that concluded this spring, Grace Centers of Hope has asked Designers for Learning to facilitate another volunteer service-learning project focused on the design of instructional materials and learning activities to meet the parameters of the College and Career Readiness standards, the basis of the General Educational Development test. The request for help includes instructional resources for adult learners, as well as instructors and volunteers who work as tutors. Volunteer service-learners selected for the fall 2014 cohort will design and develop open educational resources to prepare adults for their high school equivalency exams, as well as college or new careers.

Application Process: Please see the application instructions on the Call for Volunteers at http://studio.designersforlearning.org/call-for-volunteers/. Applications are due on or before August 15, 2014, and the volunteer selection will be announced September 1, 2014.

Comments or Questions?
Please forward this Call for Volunteers announcement to other students or faculty, and contact us with any questions or comments. Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time, skills, and knowledge to this important need.
