SUMMER SERVICE LEARNING
Instructor, Stefanie Stainton, and GPS Education Partners alumnus, Miguel, examine properties of water with some of Green Bay’s youngest residents.
Not only are GPS Education Partners students immersed within the manufacturing environment during their time in our program, they are also immersed within the communities that support them. Students from the Green Bay Education Center, hosted by Lindquist Machine Corporation, spent their Saturday participating in a community service project to support the Green Bay Community. “Bring Back the Beach” is a community-based effort that raises awareness for restoring Bay Beach to its former glory, including raising money for water clean up and maintenance costs.
GPS juniors (and a few recent alumni!) supported the cause by helping to set up and facilitate the event. They tapped into their creative sides by doing face-paint for children in attendance. Service learning, a key component of the GPS Education Partners model, gives our students opportunities to apply their skills beyond the classroom and the workplace. Our students learn and live the idea that you must be the change you wish to see in the world!
