Community Service

 

 

Forbes "30 Under 30" Alum Dan Maren, '11, discusses community service at Dwight and how it changed his perspective on helping the world


Dwight Global Online School is committed to leadership training, service learning, and community service. Through academic, civic, team, and individual exploration, students develop valuable leadership skills and perform local and global community service that will help them succeed in the next phase of their lives as students, community members, and world leaders.

Dwight Global students are unique in that they live in their global cities and they live as citizens in a global community attending a school that exists everywhere in the cloud. This provides a unique opportunity for community service, allowing students both to get involved in the communities where they are living and to come together to provide service to other students in the cloud.

Our Community Partnerships

Dwight has a tradition of not just encouraging our students to participate meaningfully in community service, but also modelling service as an institution. Dwight's innovative work with a local New York City housing community to create an athletic center for an under-served neighborhood exemplifies this effort, as does its work with WISER.
