Concern for others, one of the school’s paramount values, must by its very nature be voluntary. We strongly encourage students to participate in school-wide, class-by-class, and individual service programs, and the overwhelming majority of students do so. Each class selects student community service representatives who, with help from faculty and staff, coordinate service projects for the year. Each year, Class VI boys make regular visits to St. Theresa’s School down the hill to interact with preschoolers. In recent years, the class has also participated in Boston’s Winter Walk, raising dollars and awareness in support of the homeless. Class V boys support hunger initiatives by working at a local food bank and participating in the Walk for Hunger, to raise money for Project Bread. Class IV visits the elderly at the Deutsches Altenheim twice a month, collaborating on special, seasonal projects for residents throughout the year. Class III boys work at Haley House, an organization serving the homeless and low-income residents of Boston. Each month, the boys plan, shop for food, cook, and serve a Sunday lunch for elderly guests. Members of Class II devote many hours to preparing meals with Community Servings in Jamaica Plain, meals that are sent out to various food kitchens. Six Saturday mornings throughout the school year, seniors prepared and served breakfast for the residents of Pine Street Inn residential shelter in Jamaica Plain. Seniors also regularly visit the Perkins School for the Blind, planning and taking part in various activities with visually-impaired students throughout the year. Also, through the school’s Ave Atque Vale Society, boys in the senior class serve as pallbearers at graveside services for homeless or indigent men and women who have no family to bury them. Roxbury Latin boys have assisted at nearly 100 funerals over recent years.
