Service Learning Opportunities at YCHS
1 Peter 4:10-11
"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
Yorkville Christian High School is committed to making a difference in our community, the counties we serve, our country, and throughout the world. We believe that we can do this through serving Christ by serving others in very practical ways:
- Each student will have the opportunity to serve on a missions trip during our annual "Missions Week." This may include traveling to surrounding communities, throughout the United States, and abroad.
- Each month, YCHS students will take part in a service learning project. Some of the projects are done on location, while others are completed at the school. Service learning partners have included: Ronald McDonald House of Central DuPage Hospital, Grace Community Church, New Life For Old Bags, Resurrection Church of the Fox Valley, Cross Lutheran School, Kendall County Food Pantry, Crossroads Community Church, The People's Resource Center, Spirit Farms Agricultural Safety Day, Northern Illinois Food Bank, and Feed My Starving Children.
- As part of our "Performance Hour", students may opt to take part in our Practicum: Job Shadow. In this elective, students will have the opportunity to work daily with one of our local partnering businesses to receive experiential learning in the workplace.
