What is Nonprofit High School?
The Nonprofit High School project is specifically designed to fulfill a high school student's community service requirement for graduation, while teaching workplace skills and encouraging in-depth understanding and engagement in non-profit involvement. In 2018, we are planning a pilot year that will run through one semester. The organizations will work in tandem to help students learn about community service, then provide different opportunities for each student to dig deep into a passion project that will benefit an organization of choice, build the student's resumé, and create even greater opportunities for engagement with the community at large. Some students may even choose to make their volunteerism part of their senior project! The non-profit mentors at each organization are eager to help Nonprofit High School students on their paths to bright, meaningful futures.
This program is made possible by a grant from Lane Cultural Coalition.
