Your Impact: Experiential Learning
HAVING A FIELD DAY
Experiential Fieldwork Goes Outside the Classroom Walls
SYA’s curriculum is our mission in action, and experiential fieldwork is at the heart of it all. When students are intentionally sent out of the classroom (and their comfort zone) and into the local community, they develop key skills and take increased ownership of their education. In addition to engaging with their host families, taking educational excursions and participating in extracurricular activities, fieldwork challenges students to push themselves further.
The Gift of the SYA Experience
Our students have had many great experiences this year thanks to the many generous supporters of the SYA Fund. They've explored their new home cities through experiential fieldwork activities; developed language skills in the classroom and the community; traveled to different regions bringing history and culture to life; enjoyed extracurriculars with local peers; and experienced in situ learning. You have made all of this and so much more possible.
Last month we put out a call for alumni with careers in the arts and entertainment fields. There were too many to list in one issue. This month will feature those in film and television. (There's still time to add your works to the compilation.)
Calling all alumni in the field of arts and entertainment.
Do you have a career in visual or performing arts? Fine arts to mixed media; dancer to musician; and more. Let us know where we can find you and be included in the February issue. Know an alum who works in one of these areas? Submit their info in case they miss seeing this!
