An enduring passion to serve others
Understanding what it means to be a member of a community is an integral part of a Quaker education. In fact, community and stewardship are two of our core Quaker values.
Beginning with our youngest learners, students at Friends are taught the importance of community service — how fulfilling it can be, and how powerful an impact they can have on the world. From classroom projects that incorporate values-based lessons to small-groups, emphasizing reflection and discussion to individually-designed service work through our many partnerships with people and organizations, these experiences are designed to foster personal growth by instilling in each student a sense of responsibility to serve others in need.
