WARRIORS IN ACTION
Warriors in Action is a three-week summer program for rising seniors at Lee-Scott Academy that brings the principles of philanthropy to life. Students become more keenly aware of society’s growing needs and begin to develop the understanding, desire, ability, and instincts for philanthropic service. Real-world learning is central to this course, and students visit a variety of nonprofit agencies and foundations and hear speakers from a number of charitable organizations. As part of the curriculum, students learn how to analyze a nonprofit’s annual financial statement and how a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization operates. While they earn no school credit for completing the course, students who are accepted to the program will receive a stipend from which they are required to donate a minimum of $700 to a nonprofit organization and present an informed rationale for their choice.
