Whether Sixth Graders are learning about food deserts before sorting food at Second Harvest Food Bank or Tenth Graders are studying clean water in preparation for a site visit to Harpeth River Watershed Association, Service Learning allows faculty and students to collaborate as education merges with community impact.
At Ensworth, we are committed to fostering a spirit of service, encouraging students to become lifelong contributors. We believe this is best accomplished by allowing students to experience the joy of impacting others in a meaningful way.
To uphold this commitment, Service Learning is a core component of the Ensworth program and is incorporated into the curriculum
at every grade level. The program involves service to the school and to the broader community and includes research and writing components, grade-level meetings and activities, and hands-on participation in service activities in Nashville.
