The models listed below guide our development of students as leaders and partners with our community.
We use the following definition of Civic Engagement to guide our work: "The ways in which people work with their communities and larger social groupings to participate in the cultural and political lifeblood of [the world] (Dolgon & Baker 2011)."Read the definition of Civic Engagement [PDF].
By participating in Landis programs, we believe students will develop into Active Citizens, "where community becomes a priority in values and life choices (Breakaway)."View the Active Citizen Continuum [PDF].
Students will discover roots causes of social problems and recognize systemic issues surrounding injustice through strong direct service, education, and reflection experiences (Break Away).View the Triangle of Quality Community Service [PDF].
Using the lens of the 7 C's, students will reflect on their own development as leaders, identify opportunities for growth, and work toward the 8th "C", CHANGE (HERI, 1996).View The Social Change Model [PDF].
