Unit Overview 

Through fact-finding and a community survey, students identify health and safety needs in their school and/or neighborhood communities.  Based on their conclusions they collaboratively problem solve, design, and carry out a plan to address those problems.

Service Experience 
Students collaborate to plan, carry out, and reflect on an authentic service project that addresses the health and safety needs of the community. The project is selected based on the survey results and students' interests, talents, and resources.
