US Service Learning
The Upper School Service-Learning program embraces the values expressed in the OES Service Learning Mission Statement: "Service Learning at OES inspires students to explore their individual and collective power for good, connect to the world around them, create ways to help others, and commit to lifelong service. We aspire to a program that fills the heart and changes lives."
All Upper School students must complete a Service-Learning requirement to graduate. Service must be unpaid, and it must support a nonprofit organization and/or those who are truly in need.
Service-Learning is an element of many classes, activities, and school trips, and the entire Upper School participates in Mount Hood Climb Service Day each May. The Service-Learning Action Committee (SLAC), made up of US students, organizes Upper School service projects and reviews Service Learning policies.
