STUDENT PROJECTS

Need in Deed students learn while they make a difference in their communities.

Every year, the students in Need in Deed classrooms tell us what community issues they care about and why. Whatever issue they choose, we support them in designing and implementing a project that will help make a difference in their community. With their teacher as a guide, their issue and project becomes a lens for learning, the context for key concepts and skills in math, reading, writing, science, and social studies, as well as social and emotional skills.

When we ask students what they care about . . .

  • They tell us that they care about their communities.
  • They tell us that they care about hunger, homelessness, gun violence, mental health, child welfare, animal welfare, and environmental impacts on their communities.
  • They tell us that they want to understand how the concepts and skills they learn in school connect to the world.
  • They tell us that they want to make a difference.
