Work Program, in accordance with Quaker values, affirms the goodness of service to others and the dignity of all work. It exposes students to a variety of working experiences, such as janitorial and kitchen jobs. Work Program was originally developed as a response to the labor shortages of World War II. In the decades since that time, the school community has found Work Program to be an important part of the educational process. By taking part in the daily working life of the school, students learn to respect what it means to be part of a community and understand what impact their behavior has on other members of the community. Work Program also provides leadership opportunities. The Work Program Heads – a team of Upper School students – train other students for their work jobs, run meals and captain work teams.
