Community Service

Service to the larger community has been a cornerstone of Garrison Forest School since its earliest days. During World War I, the GFS “Farmerettes” volunteered to shuck corn on nearby farms while the farmers-turned-soldiers were stationed in Europe. Ever since, students have been helping others within and beyond the Garrison Forest community in meaningful ways. It is our hope that, through voluntary participation in community service projects, each student will experience personal growth, explore problems and challenges outside the Garrison Forest walls, and develop ways to make actual changes in society.
