I-CARE

I-CARE is a Service Learning program that provides opportunities for junior high students to participate in service-learning projects during their study hall. Each week, the service learning coordinator transports participating students to the I-CARE partner sites and chaperons their activities. Both Indian Hills and Stilwell junior high schools have I-CARE programs. Any student in seventh or eighth grade with a second through seventh-period study hall can participate in I-CARE.

Some of the service learning sites include:

  • Glen Oaks Alzheimer Center
  • Jordan Creek Kennels
  • Gigi’s Playhouse
  • Manor Care
  • Hillside Elementary
  • Clive Learning Academy
  • Crestview School of Inquiry
  • West Des Moines Social Services
  • Manor Care
  • Backpack Buddies
  • Westridge Elementary
  • Western Hills Elementary
  • Eddie Davis Center

I-CARE coordinators also work closely with building principals and teachers to provide school-wide days of service or volunteerism.
