Community Care Project

community Care

This is a highly rewarding week of participating in service projects that support the needs of our community. Over the course of the week we'll have the opportunity to visit a variety of locations around the Seattle metropolitan area. Our activities might include: serving a meal to people experiencing homelessness, cleaning up a beach or park, working with elders in a senior center, helping to take care of kids in a special needs classroom, fixing up a shelter, or working outside at a local farm.

The educational objectives of the Community Care Project are to learn about the needs of our community and how we, as individuals and as a small, energetic and devoted group, can help attend to those needs.  We will learn about working together with our peers to maximize the impact of our efforts towards making our community a better place.

Special Considerations

Participants will receive 15 Service Hours for completing this project.

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  Participants should only attend illness free. If a participant should test positive for COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick them up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with the student pick up. 

By selecting the above project, you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or if your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
