The Perspectives Project
The Perspectives Project is a new “Read and Respond” program through which teens read books on the Perspectives Bibliography that portray different people, cultures, and sensibilities. Teens can earn community service credit by writing responses to the books they read in which they reflect on how the books helped them to explore, understand, and embrace different perspectives. The responses are submitted to the Teen Department to be published on the Teen Website Here.
Instructions on how to write and submit the responses are detailed in the Perspectives Bibliography. No preregistration is required!
The published responses both give the teens writing them with an opportunity to reflect on the experiences of others through the lens of fiction, and provide their peers with insight into the books, perhaps encouraging them to read the novels as well.
Teen Film Review Program
The 2020 Teen Film Review Program for students in Grades 7-12 is now available! Registration Packets can be found on our Volunteer at Home Page.
You can earn up to 20 hours of community service per calendar year by accessing and watching films on our free streaming platform Kanopy, and then writing a review according to our guidelines. This is a great way to earn community service when it is convenient for you! We hope you will enjoy reading and reviewing these films.
