Community Service & Outreach is a shared value at Rabun Gap, and a functional part of developing character and empathy.  Rabun Gap initiates several forms of service through the After School Activities program, class projects, clubs and organizations, and school-wide events, including:
  • Building relationships at a local preschool;
  • Distributing food to needy families through a regional food bank;
  • Serving food at local and regional soup kitchens;
  • Helping cats and dogs become people friendly and therefore more adoptable at the local animal shelter;
  • Assisting with conservation groups as well as state parks and the U. S. Forest Service;
  • Volunteering for on-campus peer tutoring programs;
  • Hosting blood drives; and
  • Collecting gift boxes for needy children both locally and around the world.
And this is just the beginning!  Student-initiated concerns have led several expeditions to flood and hurricane relief sights, to the building of homes in Mexico, to financially assisting a clinic in Kenya and a children's home nearby, and expanding concepts of environmental stewardship on campus.
    • Community Service Roadtrip

Josiane, '12 (Stone Mountain, GA)

"Rabun Gap does a great job in teaching and providing students with ways to give back to the community.  During my four years here, I've distributed food to families through the Rabun Gap Presbyterian Food Distribution program, I've helped raised money for disaster relief efforts in Haiti, Japan, Zambia, and Sudan. 

What always surprises me is that no matter how much extra work it takes to get these initiatives underway, Rabun Gap students are always smiling and willing to go above and beyond."
