We believe that service learning benefits not only the recipient, but also the students that are working to help others.
Our first activity this year will occur on October 16th and is called, "Purposeful People at Work". This is an event in which we will be inviting people in the community to come and talk about what they do to help others either through their employment (fire fighters, police officers, nurse, occupational therapist, child psychologist) or through a volunteer group (NOVA, Easter Seals, Juvenile Diabetes, Special Olympics, Barkann Foundation, Emergency Homeless Shelter). This is to give kids an idea about what they may want to do to help others. Every day is an opportunity to make a difference in someone else's life. Make it a positive one.
