Service Learning

Service Learning

Service Learning takes students from the classroom into community settings and combines academic learning with meeting community needs. At Bosque School, we believe integrating volunteering with instruction and reflection fosters civic responsibility, as well as a deeper understanding of diverse issues affecting the world in which we live – at local, national and global levels.

The goals of the program are to increase students' awareness of and different perspectives and complexities around social, cultural, 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; and develop an authentic sense of compassion and ethic of service to others. Ultimately, students explore their place in the world by considering the impact of their choices and actions regarding affecting positive change.
