Student Leaders Win Award for buildOn Chapter Activities

Kudos

We’re so proud of the Lower Merion School District’s chapter of buildOn that won the Student Leader Award in PSEA’s Celebrating Excellence Awards program this year. The chapter is part of a worldwide movement to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education.

Last year, more than 300 community members from Lower Merion’s chapter volunteered a total of 12,474 hours. They worked on more than 100 projects in their community, including tutoring at Bethel Academy, delivering food to families in need, beautifying local parks, feeding the homeless, and much more. Since the program began, buildOn students and staff have also raised $750,000 to construct 10 schools and provide adult literacy programs in Haiti, Nepal, Nicaragua and Malawi.
