Click here to Check out our 2020 Fall Community Service Opportunities.Contact Mrs. Sak in the Community Service Office with any questions at ESak@birmingham.k12.mi.us or at 248-203-3509During their years at Groves, students are encouraged to engage in service learning and community service projects. By becoming involved, students directly experience the benefits of community connection and good citizenship-- specifically the positive effects giving back has on mental and physicial health.During their junior or senior years, health class students are asked to complete 10 hours of service during the trimester.Other student organizations and clubs also require or encourage service learning and/or community service commitments such as our Experiential Learning course, National Honor Society, Groves Student Congress (GSC), Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Student Ambassadors and the Interact Club.Additionally, many independent clubs, programs, classes and athletic teams create their own service projects in relationship to their focus and intent. Some examples are voter registration campaigns, Capstone projects and days of service.Finally, the entire school comes together to support an annual Charity Week filled with service events, fundraising and other efforts as organized by GSC.
