If we don’t like something in our school, we should begin the change we want to see.” Amie – 8th grade
Studies consistently show that students who participate in a service learning program have improved academic performance and positive behavior in school. To enhance student achievement, help students develop as leaders, and inspire participants to engage in their communities, ASAS launched Life Service Action. Through their participation in student-led, curriculum-driven service learning projects, ASAS students are exposed to new concepts in learning and develop a stronger sense of social responsibility and civic awareness.
Collectively, ASAS students participated in over 1 Million hours of service throughout the school year. Projects include: disaster preparedness, building school gardens, neighborhood beautification, creating videos to promote healthy eating, raising money for local and national charities, collecting water for earthquake victims in Haiti, serving meals for the homeless, and tutoring other students.
