Recently, several AC tenth graders ran a variety of activities for kids at a holiday party for Sojourner House families.
This activity comes out of the service projects that all tenth graders have been working on during their collaborative blocks on Mondays. One of the groups was interested in working with children, so they made the initial connection with Sojourner House, met with someone from the organization, and planned the party. Throughout, this has been a student-driven project, providing an authentic opportunity for students to demonstrate leadership while helping others.
This group also partnered with the Community Service Group to coordinate a wish list project, through which Upper School students “sponsored” Sojourner House families by purchasing gifts for them.
Great job, students!
