Community Service Learning
I am preparing lives that will go out from the classroom, reach out to the community, and stand out in the world. - ESD Manifesto
With Service to Others being one of ESD’s Founding Tenets, students of all ages participate in an enriching community service program. Our program provides students with age-appropriate service opportunities and encourages the idea that every act of service, big or small, is important.
From local service hours to international mission trips, ESD students are making an impact on our community, our nation, and our world.
This is not a complete list of opportunities, but a great starting place for ESD families to engage with the DFW community.
