Community Service Is Integral to the Brandon Hall Curriculum
2020年欧洲杯小组赛赛程Students are given the opportunity to participate in community service during throughout the year the school day, after-school as a club, and on weekends at events in the metro Atlanta area. As a requirement for graduation, students normally participate in 5 school-sponsored projects per year. This requirement will be modified for the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Habitat for Humanity
Our students have helped build homes in downtown Atlanta with the assistance of the staff from Habitat as well as other volunteers from the community. The future homeowner is also required to dedicate so many hours to building their home.(our students have worked alongside the future homeowners which is very impactful). Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. They believe that affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities. Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976.
