Community Service

teens in community service

As a part of our Positive Youth Development philosophy, Shortridge students learn to expand their view of the world beyond themselves and their families. Students focus on leadership skills and community involvement, and are encouraged to volunteer with one of the many service organizations in the area, such as animal shelters, food kitchens, homeless services, environmental programs, and adaptive sports. These experiences allow students to take on new roles and to practice new skills outside of Shortridge Academy. New opportunities are always arriving, and input from students is encouraged.
