Community Engagement Welcome
Rivers is committed to helping students use their "talents, imagination, intellect, and compassion" to affect positive social change. One way we help them do that is by having them engage with people in our local communities and with issues of both local and national importance. In addition to the personal enjoyment and growth that come from hands-on engagement opportunities, students develop their understanding of the complexities and root causes that underlie many societal issues as they interact with people who have had varied life experiences. Our hope is that these school-run community engagement experiences will promote students' interest in examining the history, policies, and economics of social issues in this country.
