This was a 2016 Be The Change Award submission by Jeanne Tramel Rasmussen of Senior Community Services, HOME Program
Breck School has instilled community service as a value to its students. Breck School Seniors are required to provide a week’s worth of service every spring, there is a large Community Day of Service in the fall, and a few classes utilize volunteering as a way to build relationships between students. During 2015, 336 Breck students and adult leaders volunteered 915.75 hours to assist 44 elders! Breck students have been long-term volunteers with the HOME Program of Senior Community Services.
