  • 订婚
The 社区 订婚 program at 亿百体育 strives to teach empathy, 尊重, and love for one another through experiential programs that challenge, inspire and dare us to be better friends to ourselves, 亿百体育的同行, and the earth we all share.
 
These programs are embedded in students’ school life as 服务-learning projects, advocacy initiatives, and community 服务 activities, which often have curricular ties. 社区 订婚 at 亿百体育 includes working closely with local community organizations, as well as within our 亿百体育 community.

社区 服务 has been a bedrock of 亿百体育’s educational mission since the school’s founding. We firmly believe that independent community 服务 helps prepare 亿百体育 students for life. Students who interact within and outside of their communities, who have engaged with —and learned about—a variety of individuals, and who have had to think critically about real-world problems, leave 亿百体育 prepared for the 21st century with better communication and collaboration skills, an ability to think creatively about the world’s challenges, and tools that empower them to address the systemic inequities that exist in the world.
