Community Service

SALT 2014In Galatians 6:9-10, Paul admonishes Christians saying, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” At The Geneva School, we want students to develop a strong sense of “others-centeredness.” One aspect of this goal is achieved through community service.

An annual school-wide student fundraising event, SALT: A Geneva Serveathon, allows all of our students to taste what it is like to devote time to others in a joint class effort. The entire students body, along with most of the faculty and staff and a good many parents, spend an entire day serving different local non-profit organizations. Beyond serving our community, this event also raises much needed funds for the school.

Beyond this one day, our rhetoric students have a requirement of 100 hours of community service for graduation. Both the Dialectic Round Table, the Rhetoric Round Table (student government organizations), and the National Honor Society plan and execute numerous service opportunities each year. Even beyond this, opportunities for selfless service abound in our community. And we are glad for the impact such service has on the hearts of our student community.
