The Meaning of Service - Humanities NY Reading and Discussion

Supported through a grant from Humanities NY, this series of workshops will use poetry and other texts as a foundation for discussions about service to others. Conversations will center on questions like: Why and how do we choose to serve? What is the nature of the relationships between those who serve and those who are served? What sustains and renews us in this practice? We seek to engage in dialogues that highlight lived experiences in the service of understanding and a more just and equitable approach to community engagement.
