Service Learning
Service Learning

The Service Learning program aims to deepen our students' awareness of the needs of their local and global neighbors, and to inspire our community to work effectively to oppose injustice and create change.

The program presents students with opportunities for service and welcomes their unique proposals for service projects, as well. Juniors and seniors on the Westover Service Team dedicate three afternoons each week to work with community partners, such as programs for children and adults with disabilities, environmental organizations, and animal rescue services. The Junior class runs the Dorcas Fair, a yearly tradition since the school’s creation and large community fundraising event, and the Sophomore class participates in an annual pen pal program and play day with children from a local inner city elementary school. Although Westover students perform most of their community service locally, they have also undertaken service trips to other regions of the country, to Latin America, and to Africa.

I really love going on community service trips to the Saint Vincent de Paul Society Soup Kitchen in Waterbury and Connecticut Food Bank. There are endless opportunities for community service.
