Community Service Learning Program 

It is now possible for a person eighteen years of age to graduate from high school without ever having had to do a piece of work on which somebody else truly depended…without ever having cared for, or even held, a baby; without ever having looked after someone who was old, ill or lonely; or without ever having comforted or assisted another human being who really needed help… No society can long sustain itself unless its members have learned the sensitivities, motivations, and skills involved in assisting and caring for other human beings.” ~ Urie Bronfenbrenner

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

~ Senator Robert F. Kennedy in South Africa, 1966
