In 2014, Waynflete became a coalition member of Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder, an International School of Global Citizenship.
The SStS Coalition offers opportunities for our own faculty to travel and learn about integrating global awareness into their work here at school. Shoulder-to-Shoulder’s hands-on service trips are open to rising Grade 9-12 students who want to actively engage in service learning. Trips take place in June and July in 11 diverse locations—three in the U.S., eight abroad, and one on the US-Mexico border.
"After spending three weeks in Peru—my first time away from home—I felt like a completely different person. I gained insight into ways of living that I had never even imagined, and was granted the invaluable power to recognize how critical global connection and interaction is. SSTS was a pivotal experience that pushed me outside my comfort zone and helped me see the world in a completely different light."

Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder is about teaching us what’s out there, outside of our bubble, and what we can do to help improve it. It’s about teaching us what’s possible.”
