Dalton is involved with over sixty different agencies that seek student volunteers. Students volunteer in soup kitchens, after-school programs, and hospitals. They develop big sister/brother mentoring relationships and help children with homework. They also assist at agencies such as East Harlem Tutorial Program, Star Learning Center, Burden Center for the Aging, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
In the High School, the Service Learning Program requires students to complete four project credits during their high school career. A project is a sustained, meaningful commitment to one agency or cause that is focused on providing a valuable service to those in need.
