Community Service

Creating Balance through Service

Kinkaid believes that community service is part of the educational development of our students. We organize and sponsor developmentally appropriate service opportunities for students in all divisions of the school, and we require that each student attend at least one Kinkaid-sponsored service project during the school year. Students may attend as many projects as they like – the current record is 28 projects in one year!

Kinkaid-facilitated projects are conducted throughout the year at times that are convenient for students, including weekends, holidays, after school and during the summer. Some of our community service projects in the past have included:

● Tutoring/mentoring children

● Providing respite for parents of children living with cancer

● Working with adults with disabilities

● Leading tours of Kinkaid’s Backyard

● Running a 20-court bocce ball tournament for the Special Olympics

Students with specific interests are also encouraged to present their service, fundraising or donation ideas to the Community Service Council, made up of Kinkaid Upper School students.
