March Break 2020 Community Service Programs
VOLUNTEER ABROAD WITH BLYTH ACADEMY
Blyth Academy’s March Break programs teach the kind of lessons that create true global citizens. Our international community service programs offer students the opportunity to become engaged in communities abroad by volunteering their time to work on meaningful locally driven initiatives. This allows them to learn first-hand about the world around them, while developing their leadership and team building skills—and having fun, too!
Our community service work is carried out in collaboration with locally based NGOs, and our agenda is driven by these local organizations. We ask our partners how and where we can be used so that the work we do is relevant and meaningful to the communities in which we are based.
Community service activities generally take place the majority of the week for alternating full days or half-days, with local excursions organized for when the students are not volunteering. Each student will receive a letter detailing the community involvement hours and activities that can be added to their secondary school diploma.
