The Andover eCademy Community Service group seeks to find various ways to help our community (at school, in Andover, in Kansas, and worldwide). We are excited about the opportunity to walk to help raise money to help those in need of clean water.
We want to help others who are not as fortunate as people in the USA. Many people take the things we have for granted and we want our students to see what people in developing countries experience everyday. We want to provide a sustainable service that will improve the lives of others.
Our AVID Program includes grades 7-8 and we have about 75 students all together. While our overall objectives are aligned with AVID nationwide, our short-term goals are to help students develop in areas of academics, leadership, organization, and overall college readiness. We would like to get involved in Water for Life to help our students develop a sense of service and use this opportunity for project-based learning.
We want to make a difference in the world no matter how small. We have so much and it is important that our youth understand how precious simple things like clean water can be.
