On Tuesday, Grade 7 students left campus to volunteer and visit with the nonprofits Glide, St. Anthony’s, Faithful Fools, Lava Mae (in Oakland), and Matter of Trust.
The objectives for the day were to: foster community, team build, cultivate empathy, and learn how service can impact the world.
Highlights of the day included the following:
-Dancing to ABBA while serving and cleaning up breakfast at Glide
-Eating at St. Anthony’s Dining Room
-Quietly reflecting on time spent in the Tenderloin
-Meeting members of the Faithful Fools
-Helping out with a Lava Mae Pop Up Care Village
-Matting hair (for beach clean ups) and sorting eco products at Matter of Trust
During the reflection time, one student shared the following about her experience at Glide:
We are all humans with the same wants and needs. We should all help each other because that is what we are supposed to do.
