Statement of Purpose
SEE:Change is a committee based in the American Community School in Amman that helps develop, expand, and sustain responsibility, empathy, resilience, awareness, and leadership skills in students. This is done through various enterprises directed towards different organizations in Jordan which are selected every three years.
The SEE:Change committee will be focusing on six main organizations for the 2017-2018 school year. These organizations were selected by the SEE:Change student committee after visiting and interviewing close to 18 organizations in Jordan and selecting the six that best fit the program.
By focusing on six organizations, students are better able to sustain the service program and provide larger contributions. Also, supporting the same organizations for three years allows for continuity in service so that students from all grade levels can see tangible results of the ongoing work with the selected organizations.
The Selected Organizations:
- Collateral Repair Project
- Humane Society for Animal Welfare
- Habitat For Humanity
- Reclaim Childhood
- SEP- Gazza Camp
