Any enrolled student will have the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the community while attending the River Forest/Lake Station alternative program. We strive to make a difference both inside and outside of the classroom, as it has been shown in the past activities students have participated in. Over the past year, students have volunteered to clean up community parks, donated their time to the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana, adopted United States military pen pals, and most recently, operated a food drive to help feed the less fortunate with great success. Each activity allows students the chance to give back to the community they grew up in, and one in which they now attend school. At the conclusion of each semester, students are evaluated on their participation, and if they meet the required benchmarks, earn a credit on their report card, which is also sent to their respective home school. The community service component to our alternative program allows students to not only further their education through positive actions, but gives them the opportunity to make a difference outside of the classroom.
