Senior Service Project
The Senior Service Project (SSP) at Lincoln School provides seniors with a period of transition between their time at Lincoln School and their college matriculation, and is an important way for them to build skills, gain new perspectives, and learn more about themselves.
Girls provide volunteer service to an organization or individual for a period of two weeks (a minimum of 45 hours) during the month of May. Each member of the Senior Class selects from a wide range of options, based on her interests. It’s important that students are willing to work hard and contribute to the mission of the organizations they choose.
Successful completion of the Senior Service Project requires that each student meet the following criteria:
- Each Project must an individual endeavor – no partnerships with other students
- Commit to a minimum of 20-25 hours of service at your site each week
- Maintain a daily personal journal for reflection on your experience
- Post to the SSP BLOG daily in response to the weekly Query
- Check in with your “on site” supervisor daily
- Check in with your Lincoln School mentor weekly**
- Give a final presentation of your experience to Upper School students and faculty
