Since the community of which we are a part is a global one with the influx of people from all over the world during the 'resort' season and with the proximity to Road America, there is a large interest in all things global here. A creative GEAC candidate in Elkhart Lake has a world of opportunity open to them for community service projects.
Some resources for GEAC candidates to look into as a part of their globally-focused community service project(s) include:
- United Way of Sheboygan County
- Safe Harbor or similar domestic violence shelters in the area
- The Generation Center of Plymouth (also Head Start)
- our own elementary and middle school to work students (and their families) who are English language learners.
- Also within our own high school community, there are connections to a family that owns a non-profit organization that works to save albino children in Africa. A GEAC candidate would have access to the leaders of that organization to collaborate on a project to benefit ZeruZeru.
A proposal of the global community service project, along with timeline for the minimum 20 hours, will be submitted to Mrs. Corbin and Mr. Faris for approval toward the GEAC prior to the implementation of said project.
All hours must be completed by April of the GEAC candidate's graduation year.
