We encourage the concept of global citizenship, of a worldwide community working as a team to improve conditions. Our student outreach initiative is an opportunity for senior students to explore their part in that team. Seniors are eligible for invitation once they have acquitted themselves admirably on student council, thus fulfilling that practical requirement.
A student participating in the outreach program must first research, plan and propose a meaningful project, approximately 75 hours in length, that will positively impact the local or global community, either independently or through a volunteer organization of their choice.
Where and how they conduct these service projects is up to them. What's important to us is that our seniors are learning global citizenship and seeking ways to contribute to the world at large.
Recent global outreach projects planned and orchestrated by our seniors include: volunteering to help with cleanup after hurricane damage in Florida; teaching study skills to students in China; volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary in South Africa; traveling to Afghanistan to create films for a school trying to improve education in that country; building a network of bridges and hiking trails on Delphian's campus, and the list goes on.
