Welcome to ENGAGE,
We are a group of students at various Capistrano Unified School District High Schools and our mission is to provide a centralized resource for students to access volunteer opportunities to explore and develop skills and interests while fulfilling community service hours.
We founded ENGAGE in March of 2021 at a point in time when student volunteer experiences declined due to the pandemic. We sought to aid high school students engage these opportunities once they became available again. Furthermore, we believed that students should participate in volunteer experiences, not simply to check a box for school requirements, but to develop their skills in an area relevant to their interests. Not only will this benefit the students in their journey towards college or a future career, but this will bind our community closer together.
In the future, we hope to spread our initiative to partner with more community organizations, provide more resources for student engagement, and possibly spread our initiative to other high schools in Capistrano Unified School District.
