Young people are growing up in challenging times. In the midst of all the uncertainty, Bodwell empowers students with the skills they need to survive and thrive in the world-to-come. At the heart of Bodwell's educational environment is the concept of global citizenship and leadership. Bodwell students gain an understanding of:
The idea that all societies are dependent or associated to one another in some way.
The idea that people have a duty and role in the communities they live in.
The idea that there is always an opportunity to make a positive impact.
By learning how to interact with different peoples, students learn to look at themselves through the eyes of another; they forge a unique global identity; and they build bridges to mutual understanding.
Bodwell provides students with the following opportunities that enhance their sense of global awareness:
CITIZENSHIP / LEADERSHIP
Demonstrated through History, Social Justice, and Leadership classes.
Demonstrated through the Volunteer Club and Recycling Club and community outreaches.
The Bodwell houses promote universal values and ethics.
Student Parliament leads by example and gives voice to the student body.
International Relationships give rise to volunteer opportunities and cultural exchange.
Important events that remind us of exemplary people and events that inspire us to act.
Volunteering and service learning are elements running throughout the school’s programs. Students must complete 30 hours of work/volunteer experience in community organizations before graduation. Notably, for many years since 2007, a group of students has travelled to another country to provide aid and goodwill to a partner community. Through these activities, students acquire a positive drive for bettering the world, as well as valuable experience for entrance to a university.
Here are some of our long-term volunteering partners that our students have been volunteering with. To sign up for these long-term volunteering opportunities please click on their logos below. For weekend opportunities, please go to school calendar to sign up.
