I do this work because I hope, and I love; and, I believe that the world can be a better place when every child knows that her voice matters, and when the balance of power shifts enough to allow all of us to listen. Serviam is an agent for that magnitude of transformation.

Educating, inspiring, and transforming the lives of children is incredibly rewarding. Knowing that your lesson, shared experience, and involvement in a child's life is potentially shaping their future and who they want to be is a feeling that no amount of money can provide.

science, Religion & technology

When I first stepped into Serviam, I knew it was a special place. Since then, I get to work with scholars exploring the world around us in science. Witnessing that moment when a person finally grasps a concept is what inspires me as a teacher, as well as learning new things myself. It is my philosophy that anyone who is willing can learn anything.

Volunteer, Development Team

SGA is an exceptional school with dedicated and inspiring teachers and staff with a mission that I truly believe in.  I volunteer here to help in any way I can to further the program and goals of the school.  For the past 6 years I have seen the program in action, and for the most part, the resulting transition of the students from 5th grade through 8th grade has been outstanding.
