No Stopping NA Community Service

Regardless of the challenges, Newark Academy’s generosity of spirit and commitment to service never falters. Participating in national and regional events including Clean Ocean Action’s Fall Beach Sweep at Sandy Hook and the annual MLK Day of Service, NA students, faculty and staff serve the broader community through a variety of direct and indirect service efforts throughout the school year.
Even as the COVID-19 pandemic upended NA’s usual full slate of service and service learning programs, the Community Service Council quickly adjusted to a “new normal” by offering weekly community service challenges to students of all ages and their families. Each Monday, during the Spring 2020 campus shutdown, Director of Community Service Sarah Fischer and the 13-member Community Service Council posted a new opportunity for NA students who wanted to serve others and each one of those opportunities could be done from the comfort (and safety) of their own homes. “The challenges were based on the recognition that we were all in this (COVID lockdown) together and were designed to help create community despite being apart from others who needed help or support,” Sarah said. “The hope was that we could see service as a means of taking action even when we were forced to be inactive and stay home.”  Among the weekly challenges was a partnership between NA and the local organization Front Line Angels to make face masks for healthcare workers. “I haven’t done any sewing since 7th or 8th grade when I first learned, so seeing this challenge from the Community Service Council was pretty interesting to me. It gave me a chance to reignite the excitement I used to get from sewing,” Stella Gilbert ’22 said, adding, “I’m grateful for the opportunity to make these masks, to feel like I’m a part of something bigger than myself, despite the pandemic being out of my control.”
