Service Learning

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
                                                                                                                            - Margaret Mead

The Service Learning Program at Mullen High School promotes ways for students, through organized service learning programs, to put their faith into action and further the cause of social justice by participating in community outreach programs. These service projects enable students to share faith, prayer, individual reflection, and lessons in community building thus truly living the Lasallian Core Principle of Concern for the Poor and Social Justice.

Blackfeet Immersion Trip 2017

Nine Mullen students and two Mullen educators attended the Blackfeet Immersion trip on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Browning, Montana, in early April. The nine students served in the fourth through eighth grade classrooms at De La Salle Blackfeet School. The students assisted the classroom educators and acted as mentors for the DLS Blackfeet students. Megan Fenwick, a sophomore at Mullen said, “Building relationships with the students was awesome and being a positive role model for them is important.” DLS Blackfeet School is a Lasallian San Miguel school that serves Native Americans. Nearly all of the families on the reservation are impoverished and many have members who suffer from addiction. Immersion students help classroom teachers with curriculum reinforcement and emotional support for students.

Along with serving in the classrooms, students learned about Blackfeet culture, visited the Blackfoot language immersion school, and hiked in Glacier National Park. Julian Samuels, a junior at Mullen, said, “Montana is wonderful and I couldn’t imagine being in a more beautiful setting. Hiking in and around Glacier was a great experience.” The students heard from a few native people who spoke of life on the reservation, the customs of Blackfeet people, and the social injustices that indigenous people face.

 

 

Mr. Gray, a science teacher at Mullen remarked, “Showing our Mullen students social injustice, especially here in America, is an essential piece of having a concern for others, one of the five core principles of Lasallian schools. The students always come back from the trip with more understanding of American history and a zeal for service. I can’t wait to return next year.”
