MEETINGS

Our club meetings will be held in Mrs. Coghill's classroom, room 606, and they will take place on the first Monday of every new month at lunch.

Club Description

     The purpose of the Peace Corps Club is to bring cultural awareness, understanding, and acceptance to the students of Dana Hills High School through in-depth, personal service projects with an international emphasis in developing countries. In order to promote the ideals of the Peace Corps at a high school level, we will exemplify and practice respect, selflessness, and leadership in our community and on an international level.

 

     We put an emphasis on service projects in the following fields in developing countries: decreasing poverty and hunger, achieving worldwide primary education, improving health conditions for mothers and newborns, protecting against prevalent diseases like HIV/AIDS and malaria, stimulating self-sustaining economic development, encouraging environmental care, and eradicating gender inequalities. These are all incredibly broad goals for our club, but we can do simple things to make big differences in villages, towns, and regions in these third-world countries. 

 

     Our club is open to all students at Dana Hills High School at any time in the school year. We encourage ethnic and cultural diversity as well as equality, so each member is just as important as the next. Ask yourself, are you ready to have an impact on the world you live in? If so, Peace Corps Club is where you belong.

Service Project

This year, Peace Corps Club is focusing on catering to the passions of each student. At our first meeting, we had each member write about what they are passionate about on a small piece of paper that we placed in a jar. Each month we will pick a piece of paper from the jar and whatever is on the note is what we will be focusing on for that month. 

 

For our largest chosen project of this year, we sold pants brought back from our service project in Thailand. All profits will be donated to Femme International to support East African girls in getting an education.

 

Peace Corps Club and Travel Club will also be hosting their third service trip to Thailand! The trip will take place over spring break in 2018. For any questions regarding the trip, please feel free to contact PCC at dhhspeacecorps@gmail.com.
