The Village Project

The Village Project is an academic service-learning program that first-year education majors participate in through Educational Psychology (EDUC 130) in order to strengthen their teaching skills, while providing under-represented youth with academic support and positive college role models.

The program allows Green Bay area students who attend high-poverty schools the opportunity to receive quality academic support, learn from positive role models, and gain perspective on higher education.

Participants will spend 30 hours working in the schools over a six-week period as well as completing three hours of external training. In addition, participants participate in two large group reflection sessions and produce a project documenting the impact on the community need and their own personal development.

St Norbert students are given the opportunity to:

  • Apply academic knowledge to community needs
  • Reflect on their capacity to serve as change agents in education
  • Work with community partners to close the academic achievement gap
  • Understand and value the perspectives of peers, community partners and students
  • Identify personal strengths and weaknesses to formulate strategies for improvement
