Bored? Learn how one student turned his restlessness into service.
Friends in Deed
Like so many of us, Sidwell Friends students recognized their neighbors’ needs at this time of crisis and asked, “how can I help others while practicing social distancing?”
United by their shared commitments to service and community, and with the guidance of the School’s Center for Ethical Leadership, Sidwell Friends students have put their resources, time, and ingenuity to work. In this list of community service opportunities, we have gathered a number of opportunities for your participation. If you have questions or would like to submit an opportunity, contact EJC and Center for Ethical Leadership Director Natalie Randolph '96 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
