Service Learning

Service Learning

The most impactful learning experiences at Park Day happen when classes go out into the community to work alongside fellow changemakers. By providing opportunities within the curriculum for students to witness and understand the needs of others, we hope they will learn the power of social responsibility and carry it with them their whole lives. 

Every grade participates in service learning programs that connect students to the world beyond our campus. With long standing relationships with local organizations, including other schools, non-profits, and volunteer groups, Park Day students are able to create real and lasting change through ever deepening partnerships. Volunteering helps our students learn what it means to be active citizens within their society. Collection drives and other community partnerships give them ways to help others, while broadening their sense of the world. 

Sample Projects

Every project and service experience includes classroom discussion and advance preparation, community reflection, and student-generated opportunities to extend the learning after the project has ended.
