When folks say "SLO and steady wins the race" they might be talking about SLO - the new San Diego Service Learning Opportunities website for middle and high-school students. In the race to make the world a better place are three caring, committed and creative students at Pacific Beach Middle IB World School. After Volunteer San Diego closed their doors, their useful SD Service Learning Guide was no longer being published and soon disappeared from the shelves at San Diego schools. So...IB students at PB Middle, Ellie, Krista and Devin realized there was a need for a well-organized, one-stop shop to connect service organizations and service opportunities with San Diego area students. The three innovators used the format of the printed student-friendly Service Learning Guide and began to design and organize the information into an equally easy to use website. After almost two years of research, planning, creating and evaluating, they rolled out their Service Learning Opportunities or SLO site. Although the service events focus primarily on secondary students at the IB schools in San Diego's Mission Bay Cluster, students and families across San Diego can use SLO the next time they are looking to have fun and meet new friends while making a difference in our community. Please help spread the word and share this resources with friends and family by word and social media.
