Current Project: The Center for Excellence in Curricular Engagement
The Action School, Inc. undertakes innovative projects that bridge the gap between vision, reality and practice. All projects focus on learners. In all cases our projects strive to create new structures for learning and are strategically placed to achieve important long-term goals. It is estimated that over 50,000 children nationwide will benefit from these projects each year.
The "Curricular Engagement" refers to teaching, learning, and scholarship that engages faculty, students, and community members in mutually-beneficial and respectful collaboration. It is intentionally designed to address community-identified issues, generate (through the use of critical reflection) academic and civic learning as well as personal growth, facilitate collaborative knowledge generation, and enhance individual and collective capacity for learning, critical thinking, and scholarship and for leadership and citizenship. At the core of curricular engagement is service-learning.

We are proud of our commitment to address the causes of violence in order to prevent and eventually end the overwhelming number of crimes perpetrated by and against children in our schools, colleges, and communities. Increasing the variety of after-school activities cuts down on the amount of unsupervised leisure time adolescents have. The fun and exciting activities we offer are designed to keep kids off the streets and out of trouble by engaging them in healthy competition, meaningful and creative projects, and skills training. The goal of such "Play Experiences" is to provide young people from diverse backgrounds with an equal opportunity to develop confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and a greater sense of self and community. By nurturing students’ creative skills, we hope to raise their self-esteem and decrease their temptation to become involved in criminal activity.
