The Lake Tahoe School Community Service Program aims to:
- Instill in each student the virtue of service to others and a habit of self-reflection.
- Build student awareness and confidence in their respective gifts and talents.
- Increase student knowledge of the broad and diverse needs of the community.
As part of Lake Tahoe School’s mission, we strive to help students develop into knowledgeable and responsible members of the world community, and we view volunteerism as supporting this goal. In keeping with this vision, Lake Tahoe School provides opportunities for students to serve the community, while also encouraging our students to pursue opportunities to serve on their own time.
Middle School students participate in numerous service activities each year, including trail work days and Outdoor Education service days. Community service is rooted in our school culture, and as such, attendance is mandatory on community service/work days. If students would like to volunteer outside of our school program, they are welcome to do so and keep records for their transcripts.
Finally, the structure of the Community Service program is designed to allow students to experience the intrinsic rewards associated with community involvement and benefit from the inherent value of voluntary civic engagement. We are proud of our students and look forward to seeing the growth they experience through their participation in the community.
