Delphi LA - Giving Back to the Community

April 04, 2016
  • At Delphi Academy of Los Angeles, our Middle and High School students are given the opportunity to participate in service projects and community outreach on a regular basis. From feeding the homeless at local shelters to cleaning up a community park,  these opportunities broaden the students’ awareness of the world and give their education meaning and perspective.  They raise confront, increase abilities, engage compassion for others, and ultimately will bring out a greater willingness and ability to chip in and help their fellow man and improve the conditions of the world around them.

    These values fly straight in the teeth of some of the ideals that the kids face in society “out there”, where responsibility is replaced with “blame” or “fault”, where honest communication is replaced by social pretense or even avoidance, where hard work is shunned and instant gratification is expected.

    It’s a tremendous challenge to help our students find pride and honor through confront, hard work and courage, and with that in mind, it’s clear that these outreach opportunities are vital to our overall mission.

    Below are some testimonials from Middle and High School students regarding their recent trip to feed the homeless. 

  • “This was an amazing experience and I had a great time. Everyone was so sweet and grateful. The biggest thing I got out of this was just being reminded that we are all the same and they are humans just like us. They only need some help.”

    “I really liked feeding the homeless. It was my second time but just as inspiring. I liked talking to the people and serving the food. They are very grateful and it makes me grateful too!”

  • “It was inspiring helping everyone with feeding the homeless, they were very nice and thankful. I loved working with the volunteers.”

    “I honestly didn’t know how much I would gain from this experience. I love the thought that I’m helping these people and I’m doing something that will actually improve the lives of many. I also thought about how fortunate I am to have an education, a roof over my head, and food to eat. I learned how much affinity can mean to people and I even started thinking that I would like to come again and help these people! I think that these people are very nice and deserve some help. I am glad that there are people kind enough in this world to help others in need.”
