Christian Service Coordinator, Ogechi Akalegbere, is a service champion at Connelly School of the Holy Child. Her primary goal is to help her students connect to meaningful service experiences and projects throughout the school year. Through service, students learn about themselves and God’s love. Service is also an essential component to teach justice, peace, compassion, and faith to the girls. Sixth through 11th grade are required to complete a variety of service hours anywhere from home, school, church to local nonprofits. Making sure students are involved with direct service is key to the Christian Service Program.

This past year students have had to get creative when volunteering and serving in their communities due to COVID-19. Service leaders have modified service programs.
COVID-19 has brought a host of changes to schools across the country and throughout the world. The uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and the transition to distance or modified learning has created challenges.
During COVID-19, volunteerism and serving others around you has never been so important. Even though, students across the country are spending their time indoors and practicing social distancing, they are getting creative with ways to continue to serve others who are in need during this pandemic.
One wonderful part of the holiday season is the desire to do good for others. Whether individuals are donating to organizations they are passionate about or are going out into the community to serve others, the giving heart is alive and well during this season. There are a lot of opportunities for students during this time not only to give back to others, but also make progress on their service requirement for school.
