The Baldwin mission is to empower young women to develop global understanding and the competency to make significant and enduring contributions to the world. Upper School students meaningfully engage in local and global communities to effect positive change, which fosters a sense of social responsibility by encouraging involvement inside and outside of school.
Service in the Upper School is student-driven, supported and coordinated by our Upper School Service League. The Upper School Service League also oversees Baldwin’s service-oriented clubs including:
- More Than Me
- Girls Learn International
- Cradles to Crayons
- Interact and more
We partner with The Haverford School & The Agnes Irwin School Service Boards to serve:
- Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Tutoring
- Empty Bowls
- Starfish Project for Children.
Upper School students participate in an annual Service Day each April. Each grade-level focuses on a theme for service, generates educational content for their peers and identifies ways to support their site visits. Organizations Baldwin girls have served over the past few years include Smith Playground and Playhouse, SHARE Food Program, Cradles to Crayons, Bartram's Gardens, Riverbend Environmental Education Center, Schuylkill River Banks, The Neighborhood Center, The Kroc Center - Camden, Project HOME, and the Bryn Mawr Thrift Shop.
If your organization would like to be considered as a future service project for our Baldwin girls, please contact our Coordinator of Civic Engagement.
