Learning Workshop Series

The NSP Learning Workshop Series develops skills that support student work and provide contexts to the larger issues impacting the community.

Student employees and volunteers in the Neighborhood Schools Program must attend at least one Learning Workshop per quarter (and are encouraged to attend as many as they would like).  Other members of the University Community are also welcome to attend!
