Service learning has many purposes. We want our students to be connected to the broader world, to understand the challenges of the times and to participate in finding and acting on sustainable solutions for the future. We chose the goals most relevant to the lives of our students to launch our service learning opportunities.
We involve our parents, teachers, students and community members around these goals, to seek to work alongside others to find sustainable solutions.
"We can no longer afford to think
and work in silos."
-Former UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon
