Length: full year

Service Learning is a class at Glenwood Springs High
School where juniors and seniors "serve" in the local
elementary schools. Service Learners support the education
of younger students by reading with them,
teaching them math skills, and performing a
variety of other duties. Service Learners will
spend over seven hours each week
volunteering at Sopris Elementary, Glenwood Springs Elementary, and St. Stephens Catholic
School for 1-1/2 hours daily.
Some student are considering teaching as a
future career; others just enjoy working with children,
helping their community and view
Service Learning as a great way to incorporate
volunteer work into their high school career.
