Service is one of the Guiding Principles of Palmer Trinity School. We encourage vision, initiative and leadership in serving each other, local non-profit organizations, and the global world. These activities are important in building character while striving to engage our students in a lifetime of service, learning, leadership, and achievement.
There are a wide variety of opportunities available at Palmer Trinity to become engaged in – some include but are not limited to: tutoring on- or off-campus, going on a school-sponsored trip, serving meals at a homeless shelter, collecting gently used sports equipment for deserving athletes, local beach cleanups, collecting gently used clothing, school supplies or shoes, making birthday cards for children in foster care and local group homes, writing letter to soldiers, that enrich and deepen our students’ experience and programs that support their social, spiritual, ethical and personal growth and development.
All students are encouraged to participate in at least one of the group-planned service-living projects per semester and are invited to work with the Director of Student Activities, Advisor, and student leaders throughout all the stages of the event. Students are asked to document all their service hours with the Office of Student Activities. Such information is often needed for the college application process. Service hours are also an integral requirement of several awards and scholarships including the Silver Knight Award, the Congressional Award, Junior Book Awards, the Prudential Spirit of Community Award, and the Florida Bright Scholars program.
