HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
It is a hands-on, service learning program for high school students ages 16-18 that combines community service with exposure to larger social issues such as poverty and homelessness.
High school students can make a difference in the summer! Students in the Social Justice Institute earn community service hours and learn more about social justice issues while providing much-needed volunteer service to the poor and homeless women at Rosie’s Place.
Along with building an understanding of social justice in our community, you can use the Social Justice Institute as a vehicle to complete your high school community service requirements and gain volunteer experience that you can include on your college applications. Graduates of the program receive a certificate of completion and a Community Service Verification form that details your 75 hours of service. Your final reflection paper could possibly be the start of a college essay.
Ages 16-18 years old only.
