Award-Winning Community Service Programs in Independent Schools. Revised 1991-92 Edition.
Sands, Catherine D., Ed.; Gorman, Michael J., Ed.
For nearly a decade, the Council for Religion in Independent Schools has honored schools with superior community service programs. The purpose of these annual awards is to stimulate the growth of such programs, to inform other schools of notable policies and practices, and to recognize excellence in moral consciousness and spirituality. A panel of judges makes the awards primarily on the basis of two essays--one by a faculty member and one by a student. Faculty essays typically outline the program as a whole, and student essays generally narrate significant individual and group experiences or describe the program's effect on the school. This booklet contains brief descriptions of community service programs receiving Certificates of Merit and Honorable Mention for the 1987-88, 1988-89, 1989-90, and 1990-91 school years. Projects range from organizing soup kitchens and volunteering at nursing homes to recycling trash. Exemplary essays by students and teachers are also included, along with a final essay from the council, a master list of service placements, and an index of program features and policies. (MLH)
