New Trier Service-Learning Mission Statement:
Service-Learning raises awareness and encourages the New Trier school community to learn about and explore the world beyond themselves, their walls, and their borders.
Service-Learning provides members of the New Trier school community the opportunity to question, challenge, make decisions, and address problems. Through education and exposure to local and global communities, individuals identify and develop their roles in the larger society. Service-Learning addresses the needs of the whole person, bringing together the head and the heart which supports our school motto, “To commit minds to inquiry, hearts to compassion, and lives to the service of humanity.”
"If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time; but if you are here because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together." Lilla Watson
