The Dr. William B. Dean Service Learning Program
In addition to excelling in the classroom, Hockaday girls make a commitment to serving others and improving the community in which they live. From weekly tutoring at DISD schools, to building Habitat for Humanity homes, volunteer work for students covers a broad spectrum of needs and organizations. At Hockaday, The Dr. William B. Dean Service Learning Program is focused on community service and learning from these experiences outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged to build meaningful relationships with organizations, understand the issues like hunger, homelessness, and domestic violence that they encounter in their volunteer work, and to reflect on the service they’re involved in and the impact they have on their community.
