Throughout the day, students, staff and parents were active participants in a variety of Community Service projects and activities on campus and across Florence. In working with local and global non-profit organizations focusing on environmental and social injustice, students were introduced to a wide range of world issues. Engaging students in Service-Learning education fosters both empathy and critical thinking, and important questions were addressed: How do leaders transform knowledge and skill into action for the benefit of others? What skills can you learn to effect positive change in the future? What can you do to take action and help make a difference? Students at ISF reflected on these and other questions in sessions at the end of the day to ensure a deeper understanding of their implications.
