Service & Outreach

Mission:

The Service Committee’s mission is to help our students become people of action when they are exposed to problems in their society. We encourage projects that 1) meet real community needs, be they local or global, and 2) emerge naturally from the curriculum and serve to reinforce classroom learning. Ultimately, we want our programs to be initiated, planned, and executed by HFE students, with our structural support.   
 

Service Stars and Service Logs:

 
"Small hands can help big!" Kids helping kids, kids volunteering and giving back and kids learning about the world around them. We see this everyday with our HFE students!  This year, we are expanding our service stars program and distributing service logs to all HFE students. Students that serve 10 hours will be recognized as a service star! Please check out the service log and letter to parents to learn more! We look forward to seeing the amazing impact our students can have on our community.
