Week Without Walls
From December 7-11, 2015 Trinity College School students and staff took part in the seventh annual Week Without Walls service learning initiative.
Week Without Walls is a program through which students engage in community service opportunities, taking service learning outside the classroom and helping students to embrace their potential to make a difference. Initiated in 2009, the annual Week Without Walls is part of the School's comprehensive service learning program, which supports our mission of “developing habits of the heart and mind for a life of purpose and service.” It complements other projects such as: our three annual community service days, the annual Vow of Silence day, work with organizations such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Coats for Kids and more, but has the added benefit of allowing students to “learn by doing” within their communities.
“Initiatives like Week Without Walls illustrate that even small actions can help change the world by planting the seed of global citizenship and social responsibility.” Marc Kielburger, Co-Founder, Free The Children
