Village School Community Service
The spirit of community service is ingrained in Village School life, where impressionable young minds learn the importance of giving back. Village students make donations during the holidays, hold candy drives and letter-writing campaigns for families in the armed services, adopt endangered animals and habitats for Earth Day, create book drives to promote literacy and sponsor a bake sale to raise money for Heart of the Village, where they work in family groups to complete these and other service-based projects.
In conjunction with Duke University, students sponsor rock stoves in Madagascar to help save the lemur population while sixth-grade advisories each adopt their own service opportunity, from beach cleaning to helping the homeless.
Heart of the Village
Heart of the Village is a Chadwick Service Learning program offering Village Students opportunities to engage in meaningful leadership, mentoring, and service projects. Wherever possible, these student-lead projects are aligned with their curriculum. Service projects can change from year to year but always focus on empowering students to do their part in making our community and the world a better place.
