As an added incentive, a "Principal's Award" of $500 is given to each school that is awarded funding for one or more service learning projects. These are unrestricted funds to service the betterment of the students, the service learning program, or to address COVID-19 this year. The Principal’s Award Report is due Friday, May 7, 2021 by 4:00 p.m., for all schools receiving a 2020-2021 school year service learning award.
Complimentary Educational Visits
In the past, the Brown Foundation offered complimentary educational field trips for service learning classes receiving a service learning award.
Groups were invited as our guest to The National World War II Museum, Audubon Institute’s Aquarium, Butterfly Garden and Insectarium and the Infinity Science Center.
Due to COVID-19, we understand school groups may not be able to leave their school campus to participate. If restrictions to your school are lifted and a service learning group would like to go on an educational field trip to one of our current partner groups that are accepting group visits, please contact either Jonathan Baynham or Tina Bouzon. Thank you!
