Fairfax students are challenged to move out of the academic arena by learning through life experiences. Service learning and community outreach is a fundamental component as lifelong learners. Outreach is about:
• reflective thinking…you understand your own strengths and limitations, identify goals and devise strategies for personal growth
• willingness…you accept new challenges and new roles
• awareness…you see yourself as a member of various communities with responsibilities towards each other and the environment
• participation…you are an active participant in sustained, collaborative projects• balance…you enjoy and find significance in a range of activities involving intellectual, physical, creative and emotional experiences.
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
- Mahatma Ghandi
