One key aspect of ASU Prep Digital’s 12th-grade curriculum is the Senior Seminar. In Senior Seminar, students cover the most important steps in the college admissions process, such as submitting applications and preparing for interviews.
Senior Seminar also gives students a chance to give back to their communities. The course requires ten hours of community service. ASU Prep Digital seniors have come up with all sorts of creative projects. One student decided to help clean out stalls at a therapeutic riding ranch, EmpoweRanch. Another student chose to use her violin skills to play for senior citizens at a local nursing home.
Several students also mentioned volunteering at Feed My Starving Children, as their packing sites have implemented COVID-19 mitigation measures, such as social distancing. Feed My Starving Children makes nutritious food packs for kids in areas with high rates of hunger and malnutrition.
I’m in Senior Seminar, and for my community service, I will be making YouTube videos showing how to help people from home. If I don’t hit ten hours from that, I’ll donate blood at the Red Cross.
Contribution to Community
These community service projects are one more demonstration of how ASU Prep Digital empowers students to contribute to the global community by equipping students with knowledge and training. ASU Prep Digital strives to mold teenagers into mature, generous, and educated young adults, and this is one example of how students live that mission out.
