Service Learning

Serve. Reflect. Repeat

Herndon High School encourages the service learning teaching method which is designed to involve students in authentic and meaningful service to their communities. Service learning helps students make connections between the classroom and the community.  It also provides structured time for students to reflect on their service experiences. It is intended to instill a sense of civic responsibility by encouraging students to assess their impact on the community as active contributors to society. Students can engage in a variety of activities.

Students interested in service learning are encouraged to use the x2VOL tracking and reporting platform to get involved with service learning opportunities in the community and to maintain records of their participation.
