Global Engagement & Ethics in the time of COVID-19’

VIH is excited to launch our series of three webinars in conjunction with Amizade!  Amizade is a Service Learning organization with ethical and community-driven programs throughout the U.S. and the world. You can learn more about Amizade here:  https://amizade.org/ 

Ethical & Virtual Global Storytelling

Our first webinar focused on Ethical Storytelling, and highlighted the perspectives of our 2011 Chatham Vira, Natalie Vazquez!  We considered questions such as ‘why is storytelling in an ethical way important?’  ‘How do you approach this?’ ‘How does ethical storytelling influence your relationship with others?’ And finally, ‘What, if anything would you do differently in terms of your own storytelling moving forward in the future.’ To watch a recording of this webinar, click here.  

Ethical & Virtual Social Action

During this webinar, we came together as a community to consider questions around continuing our engagement in the COVID era, primarily through virtual forums.  We considered questions such as ‘What does virtual social action look like?’ ‘How do I engage in virtual social action in an ethical way?’ ‘How do I harness the power of connection and community in spite of, or perhaps because of, the physical distance between us. Our featured VIH guest speaker was 2013 cohort member Brittany Reyes. To view a recording of this webinar, click here. 

Ethical & Virtual Service Learning

The VIH community is excited to launch its third and final webinar: Ethical Service Learning featuring Waynesburg Vira Maranda Valentino.  This webinar series constitutes an ongoing partnership with our friends at Amizade! In this workshop, participants were able to compare and contrast service learning models, and identify elements that create ethical and responsible service learning experiences.
