Stand & Deliver Challenge Projects
During the spring of 2011, twenty Stand & Deliver groups developed and implemented community service projects under the following guidelines of the Stand & Deliver “Be the Change…For Peace” Challenge Project:
- Project promotes “peace and happiness” in their school, organization, or community.
- Project was developed and implemented by Stand & Deliver students at each site.
- Students used the communication skills developed in Stand & Deliver to implement their project.
- Each site wrote a Project Paper describing their service project.
- Students documented their projects through photographs, PowerPoint presentations and participation in the annual Stand & Deliver All-stars Symposium.
We are very proud of the work done by our students. Each project involved hours of planning, practice, and execution and each had a direct and positive impact on their communities. Click on the following links to learn more about each project. Or click here for a summary of the projects.
