What is Service Learning?
Service Learning is a method of teaching and learning that connects classroom lessons with meaningful service to the community.
The community service program at The Haverford School is designed to put into action our belief that, through service to others, we can know ourselves better and make a difference in the world. We offer an extensive co-curricular volunteer program, where students have opportunities to use their talents and interests in offering valuable service to others. Volunteering in a community service project offers both students and faculty the opportunity to become involved in the surrounding community and to make an impact on the lives of those in need.
As a volunteer, a student stretches the boundaries of his education and, in the process, discovers more about the community, society, and the environment in which he lives. As an outcome of this volunteer effort, we often see the emergence of student leaders, thus offering our boys the opportunity to hone their leadership abilities.
