The mission of the Boys’ Latin Community Service program is to increase students’ understanding of community issues, provide opportunities for hands-on experience, and enhance student learning through instruction, experience, and reflection.  The community service program is committed to educating and engaging all members of the school community, including faculty, parents and alumni.  The program strives to instill a collective sense of awareness, compassion for others, and responsibility toward the broader community.  Through this, it is our goal to fulfill the school’s motto, esse quam videri.

Multiple opportunities to engage in community service and service learning are offered throughout the school year, ranging from collections of blankets, hosuehold supplies, personal hygiene items and Thanksgiving turkeys, to planting trees, cleaning local watershed areas and neighborhood beautification projetcs.  Upper School students have access to 6-8 Saturday community service outings as well as summer opportunities which have taken students to nearby Baltimore neighborhoods as well as New Orleans.
