SASAB

 

SASAB

The Social Action Student Advisory Board (SASAB) provides student leadership and support for the continual growth of the Stone Ridge Social Action program through preparation, evaluation, modification, and participation. They aim to model student engagement in the Social Action program, channel their passion for service, and inspire a life-long commitment to service in all Upper School students.

SASAB is made of four sub-committees: Preparation, Action, Reflection, and Infusion. SASAB co-leaders are Arianna Scott and Kendall Kaiser. 

 

Preparation

Preparation

The Preparation Team is a group of student leaders who collaborate with faculty to plan informative, engaging, and interactive morning assemblies that set the tone for each Social Action day by contextualizing our service through an examination of peacemakers in our local and global communities.

 

Action

Action

The Action Team works to take the mission of Social Action a step further by cultivating a relationship between Stone Ridge students and the sites with which we partner, thus encouraging students to continue their service outside of Stone Ridge.  

Snack Packs

The Action Team leads the Snack Pack program, in which the Upper School brings in fresh fruit, granola bars, and healthy cookies to make individual snack bags that are donated to SOME (So Others May Eat), a local soup kitchen.

 

Reflection

Reflection

The Reflection Team creates the agendas for each reflection, which occurs at the end of the Social Action day. The team designs creative, interactive activities and multilayered discussions that encourage students to end their day of service in a meaningful way, share their experiences, strengthen their passion for community service, and grow as members of our Stone Ridge community.

 

Infusion

Infusion

The Infusion Team works to cultivate a school-wide awareness of social justice issues and incorporate social justice into the Stone Ridge curriculum through a variety of activities, such as Brown Bag lunches, regular social justice announcements, and small service projects.
