Seven Stars, an assessment center and residential treatment program for teens ages 13-18 who struggle with neurodevelopmental disorders, is pleased to announce the addition of community service projects into programming each week.
Once a week, students will visit various agencies around the local community to take part in service projects. Students will take part in a variety of service projects such as sorting through donations at a local food bank, visiting a local animal shelter to feed and walk the animals, and taking care of horses in a nearby center for abandoned horses.
Another service project that students will engage with is the LDS Welfare Square in Salt Lake City. Welfare Square is a facility that contains a variety of opportunities for service projects including a clothing donation center, food donations and a cannery.
“Community service helps students feel confident and empowered in their ability to help others,” comments Gordon Day, Executive Clinical Director and Founder of Seven Stars. “It helps build self-esteem and a sense of purpose. We’re really excited to be adding community service to weekly programming because it will reinforce many of the skills we help teach students on a regular basis.”
