Community Service

"Engaging in service offers incredible opportunities for our students. It requires them to think carefully about the needs and perspectives of others in their community. They develop a plan and then work together to best meet those needs. The community service programs at Belmont Hill help our students foster empathy, a sense of generosity, and a commitment to supporting others."

Stephen George, Director of Community Service

Belmont Hill Community Service

Community Service on the Hill

Belmont Hill supports many non-profit agencies and causes throughout the year. Our goal has always been to provide ongoing support to these groups, while developing a strong relationship with them along the way.

New initiatives and programs are added carefully, and mostly at the suggestion of the students, who then take the responsibility for educating our community and leading that particular project.

Our focus has always been on giving of time, talent, energy, and donated items. While we have "no dessert days" (twice a month) and "dress-down days" (twice a year) as fundraisers, the designation of these monies is voted by one of our Middle and Upper School community service committees. And, while we may sell products to raise money - such as cookies for breast cancer awareness and flowers for Valentine's Day for Dana Farber - we purposely do not solicit direct funds from our parent body.

Students Offer Support for Domestic Violence Shelter

Every year, DOVE runs an “Adopt-a-Family” holiday assistance program through which donors can provide families in need with gifts that they have placed on a wish list. Given COVID-related safety precautions, this year the assistance program shifted to only accepting donations that will go towards those gifts. This is where Belmont Hill students Jalen Walker ‘21 and Daniel Drucker ’23 saw an excellent opportunity for Belmont Hill to get involved.
