Partnerships for the Center of Public Good are an avenue to help us identify and target the greatest needs within our community. Our ongoing relationships with key local organizations allow us to participate in meaningful service work year-round.

Student Led Initiatives

Student Empowerment is an integral part of our service program. Teaching our learners to be empathetic and then encouraging them to think critically about their role within their communities is where the passion for change begins. As a result of this approach, many of our projects are student-initiated and executed.
