Kent Denver's Community Service Program connects our students to local, national and international communities in need through sustained, meaningful relationships. This work broadens student horizons and makes the world a better place.
Our strong commitment to community service is reflected in the fact Kent Denver students collectively provide more than 15,000 volunteer hours to the community each year.
Middle School Community Service
Middle-schoolers provide service to the community through their advisory groups, allowing meaningful experiences in a structured setting.
For more than 20 years, sixth-grade advisory groups have provided weekly service to a downtown Denver soup kitchen. Students serve food, interact with guests and clean up at the end of the lunch period.
Seventh- and eighth-grade advisory groups provide service on several designated days each year. Projects range from volunteering at local elementary schools to working with a VFW Post and capturing stories of service through the Veterans History Project.
Upper School Community Service
Upper School students independently pursue a wide array of meaningful community service initiatives in Colorado and around the globe.
To fulfill Kent Denver's graduation requirements, students must perform a minimum of 80 hours of service, at least 40 of which must be completed with a single, pre-approved, nonprofit organization.
Our community service coordinator assists students with selecting organizations, managing projects and tracking hours.
