Youth Voices from ELO

Thurs May 31, 2012
4:00-7:00 PM

The John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor Commission Offices
One Depot Square, Woonsocket, RI

Join ELO Woonsocket and their students, advisors, and community mentors for an afternoon highlighting all of their work, innovation and dedication. Students at Woonsocket High School and the Area Career and Technical Center have been hard at work developing, hands-on, innovative projects that put them back at the center of their learning while giving them the opportunity to receive credit for their projects. Over the past year, students have been working on projects ranging from pediatric and cardiologic study, to oral histories, to spending a life-changing 3 weeks in Rwanda. There will be multi-media presentations and a panel discussion about these experiential, credit worthy projects. Join us to hear all about these and other projects, and hear how learning this way changes the student’s outlook on their education and their future.

ELO Woonsocket provides all students with high-quality, experiential, and personalized learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom setting as a pathway to graduation.

ELO Woonsocket is a collaborative initiative of RiverzEdge Arts Project and the Woonsocket High School
