Service learning at our Junior Campus is about engaging our young students in ways they can actively learn about and contribute to their communities (e.g. classroom, school, neighbourhood, city, global, etc.). One goal of service learning is to connect meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, personal growth, and community involvement. As a result, many of the opportunities presented to the children will be connected to their classroom curriculum. School-wide service initiatives will be offered throughout the year, as well.
What is community service?
"No act of kindness is ever wasted." - Aesop
Volunteering time to community service projects is a meaningful way to connect our students and faculty socially, emotionally, and academically to our community and world. Community service projects also help students develop real-world skills that will help them succeed in life: leadership, problem-solving, collaboration with others, time management, and communication. Most importantly, students and faculty learn that the work they do can make a real impact in the world.
