Service Learning is an educational experience that takes students from the classroom into community settings, applying academic and real-world concepts while meeting a real community need. At Bosque School, we believe strongly that integrating meaningful service with instruction and reflection will enrich learning, teach civic responsibility, and engage students in issues affecting the larger community – locally, nationally, and globally.
“Teach this triple truth to all: a generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.” - Buddha
Goals of Bosque School’s Service Learning Program include helping students to:
Increase their awareness of social, economic, and environmental issues
Learn about how organizations and individuals can help address and impact these issues
Experience and understand the value of volunteering time and talent to be part of the solution
Develop a deeper sense of empathy, as well as an ethic of service to others.
