Greenwood School's Community Service Learning Program
Greenwood School is a boarding school in Southern Vermont
dedicated to taking bright and talented boys with learning
differences and learning disabilities (LD) such as dyslexia,
attentional difficulties (ADD / ADHD), or executive
functioning deficits and empowering them with the skills
and strategies necessary to bridge the gap between their
outstanding promise and present abilities. A comprehensive
3-year pre-preparatory middle school academic program,
including science, history, art, literature, music,
and athletics, assures our students are intellectually
challenged, creatively inspired, and factually informed.
The Greenwood School is looking for organizations to
partner with in our Community Service Learning (CSL)
Goal of the CSL Program:
Expand confidence, increase empathy, foster trust and
tolerance, and improve the socialization skills of the
students at the Greenwood School.
Impact the Greenwood students by introducing them to
service work – thereby starting the process of
witnessing the inherent value of “giving back”
to one’s community. Build mutually advantageous
partnerships with local and distant communities.

knowledge, formally inventoried existing resources in
the region, identified a continuum of housing need and
recognized the need for more information. A feasibility
study has been conducted to determine the best way
to use our resources to meet the most need.
