Project Serve

What is Project Serve?

Project Serve is an annual day of sponsored community service in which teens join together in an effort to positively impact their local communities. Students assist area nonprofits and organizations with projects that might not be completed without a volunteer workforce. Community leaders and businesses support these volunteer efforts with a financial pledge. These funds enable our students to grow in leadership and character by helping them attend various trips and conferences throughout the year.
