Outreach

Crescent School’s Outreach Program gives boys opportunities to participate in community service at the local, national and international level. They gain a broader understanding of the world, a greater awareness of the impact of their choices, and deeper empathy.

  • Local Outreach

    In every grade, Crescent boys are actively involved in Outreach programs that are close to home. Integrated into our class schedules, these programs are designed to reflect Crescent’s core values: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Compassion.

    Here are some examples of our local Outreach programs:
    • Learning about the issues of poverty and homelessness by volunteering with the Good Shepherd Centre.
    • Building relationships that bridge generations by spending time with residents of local retirement homes.
    • Learning social and leadership skills through Right To Play activities with underprivileged children.
    • Developing empathy and understanding by tutoring and collaborating with younger students at other schools.
  • National Outreach

    Service learning trips to Northern Ontario give Upper School students an opportunity to learn from members of First Nations communities about Indigenous issues and the truth and reconciliation process.
  • International Outreach

    For our Upper School students, our International Outreach trips offer hands-on service learning opportunities combined with life-altering cultural immersion experiences. They give the boys the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, develop personal leadership skills and reflect on the kind of men they want to become.

    Our International Outreach program helps boys develop a strong understanding of the connections between local actions and global consequences. We encourage our boys to learn about, care for, and contribute to society - to be "global citizens" with a social conscience.

    All trips are led by Crescent School staff and are developed in partnership with local service providers. Students complete a learning component before and after their trip to deepen their learning experience.

    International destinations in 2018/2019 include Colombia, South Africa, Tanzania and Iceland.

  • The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

    Crescent students can join other young Canadians who are participating in The Duke of Edinburgh's Award. The Award encourages personal development in the areas of Community Service, Skill Development, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey. In pursuing these activities, young people learn responsibility, acquire new skills, and increase their level of physical fitness.
