Seeing is Believing: LCS Students Learn About Community Challenges

On a recent service learning opportunity, our students had the chance to participate in the Seeing is Believing Tour. This tour allowed them to travel into the heart of Peterborough to learn about the issues facing our community and to understand them on a deeper level.

The first stop on the tour was at One City PTBO, a non-profit organization that focuses on supporting those who have experienced homelessness and/or criminalization toward their full inclusion into the community. Our students were able to see firsthand the important work being done by the organization to provide support and resources to those who need it most.

The second stop on the tour was at YES Shelter for Youth and Families, where students had the opportunity to learn more about the housing crisis in Peterborough and what YES is doing to support youth and families experiencing homelessness. Through this experience, students gained a better understanding of the challenges facing our community and the ways in which they can make a positive impact.

Service learning opportunities like the Seeing is Believing Tour allow our students to engage with their community in a meaningful way and to learn about important issues facing our society.
