AMS Peace Retreat

2016 American Montessori Society Peace Retreat

 “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
—Mahatma Gandhi

"Implementing Meaningful Service Learning"

October 6 – 9, 2016
Solomon Episcopal Conference Center
Loranger, LA

Join members of the AMS Peace Committee for an in-depth look at service-learning— what it is, how to develop it, and the ways that it can galvanize and enrich you and your students.

During the retreat, you will engage in meaningful service learning of your own as you help to repair homes in nearby New Orleans—instruction will be provided—and then reflect on the experience with other members of the group.

Registration information, including rates, will be posted later this spring.
