Service learning is a big part of the New Trier experience and during sophomore year, students will have multiple opportunities to participate in a service activity with their advisery. In the fall, adviseries will choose to do a service learning trip or the Power Program. When a group chooses social service they will be excused from classes on that day so that they can go out into the surrounding community and provide their service to an organization, group of people, or physical location. Common trips include beach or forest preserve clean ups, work with Feed My Starving Children, or partnering with Bernie's Books. Adviseries can choose any organization they may have an interest in or a connection to. The adviser will work with their group to choose an organization.
