Earl Lawson’s 2023 Community Impact
When considering the most important ways for students to grow, learn, and benefit the communities they live in, service learning is unrivaled. It’s not always easy for schools to organize, plan, supervise, and execute service learning events while maintaining focus on the student’s academic progress. Uncover KC’s Discovery Education program can help teachers and schools by using our connections to facilitate community service events, volunteer outings, guest speakers, and innovative educational technology to foster student growth.
One of UKC’s educational partners, Earl Lawson Early Education Center, is located in Leavenworth, Kansas. The Earl Lawson team has been able to reach milestones in the many different service projects that have been conducted throughout the year. Check out what some of the projects were and the impact statistics of a few projects from 2023 below.
