Life’s most urgent question is what are you doing for others?Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Princeton Day School mission statement notes, “In academics, athletics, the arts and service, we celebrate the pursuit of individual excellence and the spirit of collaboration that binds us together as a community.”
PDS Service Learning nurtures our students to become responsible global citizens. Service learning erases the “us” vs. “them” approach by facilitating authentic opportunities for developing empathy. At PDS, we support you as you investigate issues to gain a deeper understanding of various problems. You collaborate to develop action plans and build reciprocal partnerships, which leads to a greater sense of your agency in the world. The “us” vs. “them” becomes a collective “we.” As part of the Service Learning program, US students volunteer at least 50 hours across a wide spectrum of diverse pursuits and interests.
