Serve to Lead
CLMA's Serve-to-Lead program is the heart of its leadership and citizenship development program. Selfless service is a core value of most great leaders throughout history, teamwork and a commitment to the greater good and success of the community or team the pillars upon which successful teams and communities stand. These core values are developed and strengthened throughout a student’s experience at Carson Long via the two central elements of our Serve-to-Lead Program; Community Service and Service Learning.
At CLMA, we understand the educational and character development impact volunteerism can have on a student. For this reason, we have committed an hour and a half every Wednesday for students to develop this aspect of their character through dedicated meaningful service to meet important needs of local community. All students are required to participate in either Community Service - providing labor for an established project - or Service Learning - developing and implementing their own project.
