Students & Teachers as Active Citizens

CHESP Learn and Serve Adapter Projects

2004-05 was exciting for Boston Grant Awardees. Beginning with a CHESP Learn & Serve Conference where teachers met Higher Education and Community Partners and continuing on to another Conference where Teachers, Boston Student Advisory Council Members, and Higher Education and Community Partners, addressed Issues of Homelessness, the results will never end.
