Service Learning in Saint James, NY
A Service Learning Program provides students with opportunities to develop real-world skills by contributing to the world outside of Harbor. Students use their personal interests to research organizations that deliver services to the community. They can become involved in the cause directly or indirectly, by raising awareness in the school community or by making connections in the community and working for the cause. Past projects include:
- Working with a local wildlife rehabilitation center and organizing an assembly
- Researching ways to make affordable water filtration systems for villages in Madagascar and organizing a fundraiser to aid the efforts of scientists working in Madagascar
- Working with Smithtown Food Pantry, bringing awareness to our school community about local hunger issues
- Working with hurricane victims in Texas and organizing a gift card fundraiser for clothing, food, and home repair service.
