Learning takes form in many ways, the most common being academic but we need to encourage students' learning through experiences.

My idea is for students to visit the local senior living facility once a month to read, sing or craft with the residents of the senior facility. 

Share insights you heard during your empathy work.

This idea is help student develop a sense of community and a sense of belonging.

Priya, I love the idea of students interacting with their community to build belonging! I wonder if students might bring their talents or expertise to teach or share with the senior residents. Perhaps there can be a reciprocal share, where both the student and the senior walk away with some new learnings.
