Saint Ann’s students and faculty engage with community service through a multiplicity of mediums, a reflection of our school’s fundamental belief that interest and engagement should not be limited by any one approach, or any one methodology or dogma. The result is a mosaic comprised of pluralisms, each constituting a powerful affirmation of humanity’s ingenuity and capacity for innovative good. Thus our students redefine community service as they see fit, challenging types and norms: whether it be the senior who teaches Latin at a local Senior Center, the junior who expounds effective altruism, the sophomore who has traveled the world on environmental missions. We invite to view what is ultimately one of many windows into our students’ experiences below:
- Brooklyn in Solidarity: Read about the symposium we held on immigration here (and read St. Ann’s junior Tobias Berggruen’s introductory remarks and see photos from the event here and here, respectively)!
- Volunteering at Xavier Mission: Read Saint Ann´s sophomore Finn H´s article about volunteering at Xavier Mission, located in lower Manhattan.
- Volunteering at Chung Pak Early Childhood Center: Click here to read Saint Ann’s junior Hannah I’s article about volunteering with preschoolers in Chinatown.
