Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder 2021

 

THE RELATIONSHIPS ARE MEANINGFUL. THE LEARNING IS AUTHENTIC. THE EXPERIENCE IS TRANSFORMATIVE.

Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder offers students in rising grades 8-12 opportunities to learn principles of ethical leadership from inspiring nonprofit leaders. Using a case study and field study approach, students discover the complexity of global challenges by working and learning alongside trusted nonprofit partners.

As an SStS Coalition school, the program offers opportunities for Waynflete's 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 students who want to actively engage in service learning. Trips take place in June and July in nine diverse locations—four in the U.S., four abroad, and one on the US-Mexico border.

We understand there is great unknown around travel this summer. SStS has developed a set of protocols for travel this summer.  Given the uncertainty, SStS has made it easy and financially risk-free for students to apply this summer. Read the Summer 2021 registration form here.

"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."
