“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”
—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
To honor the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy, our thoughts around this holiday are imbued with how we can help spread the love and humanity that connects us all. Just as we work to create inclusive and supportive learning environments for each of our coders, we encourage all of our students to be agents of positive social change in their communities and beyond.
To celebrate their impact, every camper who has a plan in place to do an act of service by the start of camp on January 18th will receive a $10 credit towards a future class or camp. Just reply to your registration confirmation email with a description of what your child will do to help someone else and the credit will be applied to your account.
Not sure where to start? Here are some suggested activities:
- Donate clothes
- Plant a tree
- Donate used/unwanted toys
- Give books to local hospitals or daycare
- Start a school recycling program
- Hold a collection drive
- Make handmade cards
- Do chores or work for neighbors
The possibilities are truly endless. We hope your child will take advantage of this opportunity and share with us in class how they’ve decided to honor MLK Jr.’s legacy on this important day.
