About The Trip
On June 3rd, our current class of Student Service Program members are traveling to Southwest for a five-night service-learning trip. During their stay, students will be volunteering with All Hands And Heart, Praying Pelican Missions, Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte County, Keep Charlotte Beautiful, TEAM Punta Gorda, and more. All of these opportunities will help our students better understand how a natural disaster, like Hurrican Ian, impacts a community.
This is all so our students leave the Student Service Program with a well-rounded understanding of the needs in a community and ways they can best address them, while also homing in on their passions. Each step they take in life – whether they stay in the Greater Tampa Bay Area or not – our students can use the skills and talents they discovered and sharpened in the Student Service Program to serve a cause they care about.
As you may know, our programming is offered at no-cost to the students we serve. However, we believe an important skill to teach our students in building the next generation of servant leaders is how to share our mission with others and make an ask. To support their service-learning trip to Southwest Florida, our students participated in a Bowl-A-Thon on May 13th, where they collectively shared our mission with 65 donors and raised more than $5,500.
We are proud of our students for stepping up to support our mission and their trip to Southwest Florida!
