At St. Elizabeth's School, we champion the belief that children can be change-agents in their community. Each year every class picks a project they will focus on. These include activities like volunteering at the soup kitchen at Capitol Hill Community Services, monthly visits to the residents of Bessie's Hope, collecting shoes for Soles 4 Souls, or holding a penny drive to raise money for Pennies for Patients.
Each year a group of middle school students attend the STAMP conference. STAMP stands for Students Taking Action and Making Progress, and the conference features youth-oriented workshops led by high school students. The conference empowers young people with tools for building more inclusive communities as they head back to their schools.
