Delaney Jures is the teacher for the new Community Service Expeditions course at Everest Public High School. This course is about finding non-profit organizations to work with and to volunteer at. When asked about what she wants students to get out of the class, Ms. Jures said, “I want them to be able to find value in community service and feel empowered by going out and volunteering and changing their community that they live in.”

Here’s what students had to say about their new Expeditions course:
