Community Service

Community Service, The Curriculum for Caring, is an essential component of the Adolescent Program curriculum.  It is through community service projects and interactions that the Program expands beyond the bounds of the classroom walls.  These projects offer the adolescents opportunities to explore and contribute in meaningful ways to the “greater” community, including their families, the school as a whole, the city and town of Ithaca, and beyond.  Through community service, students encounter people of all ages and circumstances, and gain new life skills, as well as an appreciation of their abilities to make a difference in the world.
