AIEP International Students Perform Community Service Throughout Connecticut
April 4, 2016
International high school students from China that are part of the AIEP Host Families program recently performed community service at various locations throughout the state of Connecticut.
Over 150 students volunteered their time at Stratford Point, Holy Land in Waterbury, the Greenwich Audubon Society and the Urban Alliance in Hartford. Student’s activities ranged from planting trees to cleaning debris and raking leaves. At the Urban Alliance Church Army Group event, the students assembled packages that included clothes and gloves. They also wrote positive and encouraging notes that were placed inside of each package that was made.
AIEP students are studying at various local private middle/high schools throughout Connecticut including: Fairfield Prep, Lauralton Hall, Trinity Catholic, Stanwich School, Christian Heritage, Chase Collegiate, Holy Cross, Sacred Heart, Northwest Catholic, Master’s School and William’s School. During the school year students reside with local host families.
AIEP students perform community service twice during the academic school year; once in the Fall and again in the Spring. AIEP is a firm believer in giving back to the community while at the same time teaching students not only the value of helping others but also the importance of teamwork.
