SEE:Change Service Opportunities

The Community Service program this year will be focusing on six organizations where all the service activities will be directed. The organizations were selected by students. They visited close to 18 organizations in Jordan and selected the six which their research concluded as the best for the program. The selection of six organizations is made in an effort to have a sustainable school-wide service and larger contributions by our community towards the given organizations. This pledge of support also promotes continuity in service so students improve on many lifelong skills through the activities organized.

All students are expected to take part in community service as a mandatory requirement in high School. Students are highly encouraged to take part in more than one activity. All students in the High School, grades 9 to 12 must either create a new SEE-Change project of their own AND/OR must complete a total of 30 hours engaging in service **within school or service outside of school** with Gaza Camp, Ruwwad, Habitat for Humanity, Reclaim Childhood, Collateral Repair Project and/or Humane Center for Animal Welfare.
