Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others,

faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

1 Peter 4:10



Community service is an important component of Imani’s philosophy – the development of the “whole” student.  Service to others develops character, integrity, and builds self-confidence.  In addition, service learning has been associated with academic gain.  


Every student is expected to complete 40 hours of service each academic year, which can be served within the Imani community and as volunteer work.  Projects include volunteering with the nonprofit agencies of their choice, peer tutoring, student mentoring, and school cleanup or church projects. 


The program provides opportunities for students to become active, positive contributors to their communities.  As they work within their community, they build a sense of responsibility and a sense of pride in helping others.
