Our Program Goals

Beyond the OCE goals for all W&M students participating in programs, we have the following goals for each Education Program volunteer's experiential learning:

  • Develops an understanding of positive youth development and implements practices with integrity
  • Delves into the root causes of education equity and implements their understanding to positive impact the issue, either individually with their direct work with young people or indirectly through large-scale systems work
  • Exhibits a dynamic understanding of key education issues and practices impacting how they serve inclusively throughout the community
  • Makes connections between the social and education policy and practice 

For every youth from the Williamsburg community who participates in an offering of Education Program, we have the following goals:

  • Young people are interested and engaged in programming
  • Young people grow and develop in relationship and in wellness
  • Young people are safe, physically and emotionally
