LOTS believes in the importance of experiential learning, and service learning is a perfect opportunity to develop well-rounded and responsible individuals. By engaging in service learning, students can apply academic theories and concepts in real-world settings while also enhancing their understanding of social issues and developing a sense of compassion towards others.
Service learning opportunities are available to students across all grade levels. LOTS has established partnerships with various local organizations, such as orphanages, hospitals, and environmental groups, where students can volunteer their time and skills to make a meaningful impact in the community. Through service learning, LOTS students develop a sense of social responsibility, leadership skills, teamwork, and self-awareness. Additionally, service learning provides an opportunity for students to develop skills and qualities that are highly valued by universities and employers.
LOTS recognizes the importance of giving back to the community and encourages its students to do the same. Service learning is just one way that LOTS instills its values of empathy and social responsibility in its students, helping them become positive change-makers in the world.
