Provides information about Student Service Learning opportunities


As MCCPTA's new SSL subcommittee chair, I hope to provide you with regular information on the student service learning program and related volunteer opportunities. 
To get started, here are some resources I recommend checking out. Feel free to pass these along to your school listservs (most appropriate for middle and high schools since those are the years when students can/must earn SSL hour credits toward the graduation requirement).
