Senior Service Project
2015 Senior Service Project Forms and Information
The Senior Service Project (SSP) at Lincoln School is intended to provide seniors a period of transition between Lincoln School and college matriculation, and is an important opportunity for skill building and self-realization. The unique nature of this service project presents each girl with the opportunity to provide 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 will select from a wide range of opportunities to provide service. This time of service, regardless of setting, encourages independence, commitment and introspection as well as a willingness to work hard and contribute to the mission of the organization.
Successful completion of the Senior Service Project requires that each student meet the following criteria:
- Each Project is an individual endeavor – no partnerships
- Commit to a minimum of 25 hours of service at your site each week.
- Maintain a daily personal journal for reflection on your experience.
- In response to the weekly Query, post to the SSP BLOG weekly (minimum of 1 post /week).
- Check-in with your “on-site” supervisor daily.
- Check-in with your Lincoln School mentor weekly**
- Final Presentation of your experience to Upper School students, and faculty.
