iLearn Schools is proud to work in partnership with the Jefferson Awards for Public Service which started at Bergen ASCS High School in 2014. iLearn Schools agreed to participate in the Jefferson Awards Students in Action (SIA) Program at the Banner School Level. Through the participation, Students in Action agrees to fully endorse the goal of increasing student involvement in volunteerism and recognize the SIA is driven by student leadership. The mission of the Students in Action program is to train student leaders to effectively engage their school communities in meaningful volunteer service that positively impacts the greater community.
Since the program started, our students have provided service to the local community and third world countries. In 2014, Students in Action members went to visit Kenya and provided service by visiting orphanages, communities and schools in the area. Each year, iLearn Schools hopes to send a group of students to explore various parts of the world to work with the communities they visit and provide a long lasting impact on themselves and their future.
