Experiential Learning is learning by doing. By engaging students in hands-on experiences, they are better able to connect theories and knowledge learned in UGAA’s after school programs to real-world situations.
When students participate in experiential education opportunities, they gain:
A greater understanding of course material
A broader view of the world and introduction to career paths
Insight into their own skills, interests, passions, and values
Opportunities to collaborate with diverse organizations and people
Self-confidence and leadership skills
