Welcome to the Student Service 2012 Project Update
Though most of MEF projects and tasks are focused on the third world, we understand that there is a responsibility to reach the community that rests in our own neighborhood as well. Though Nebraska boasts of a superior educational system, there have been substantial decreases in high school graduation rates among hispanics, blacks and Native Americans. They have continued to be significantly lower than among other races (source). In our area, 2,335 students did not graduate in the 2009-2010 school year. It is clear that we have work to do.
A strategic way to combat these trends is to improve the leadership abilities of the students within the system. As such, MEF seeks to continue the work in funding a student service project that provides a training camp, equipping young people in leadership qualities and understanding in how to lead educational seminars across the Omaha metro area. These week-long educational seminars are designed to encourage a number of character qualities that tie directly into an increase in educational standing and sociological development.
The cost of the student service leadership camp and the ongoing educational weeklong seminar is estimated to be 10K.
