Service Learning

Service Learning and Social Entrepreneurship at Windward

Service learning exposes students and faculty to experiences that engage each individual in creative problem solving, meaningful relationship-building, and learning that is connected to true community needs.

Service learning projects, opportunities, and curricula at Windward School are designed to create citizens of our local and global communities who are compassionate, curious, and connected with others. Our students have the potential to learn deeply by developing collaborative, reciprocal relationships with our local and global partners. We embrace an assets-based, community-driven approach where both students and community partners are serving and learning together through shared decision-making and direct engagement. Exploring life through the lens of a variety of challenges, situations, and exchanges pushes students to broaden their perspectives toward a more symbiotic and collaborative relationship with the world in which they live.

By integrating service experiences into the lives and learning of our students, we hope that they will grow as creative and innovative collaborators, and find the potential within themselves and in our world to become social changemakers.
