An important component of the Stanbridge program is teaching our students to give back to the local community. This service gives them an opportunity to help, learn, and excel outside of school, which ultimately broadens their worldview.
When asked about Community Service, an alum said, “It [was] a different experience from every day in school. It was very productive. We helped box up the produce” at Second Harvest Food Bank. Students that year even set a food bank record – they boxed, weighed, and put 18,000 pounds of sweet potatoes on pallets for delivery in just two hours!
Organizations Stanbridge students have worked with throughout the years include:
“Despite the challenges they may have with academic or social tasks, our students can affect positive change with their hands. They make a great team!”
“[Community service] is a fantastic way to do things outside yourself, and it fits into the Stanbridge modality of learning life skills.”
