Community Service Programs and Organizations
Taft's Community Service Program is the practical embodiment of the school motto, Not to be served, but to serve. Students engage with the greater community by joining service-oriented clubs and organizations; choosing community service as their after-school activity; developing a service-based independent study project; or by volunteering their time and talents to one of the many community service projects or mentorship programs offered throughout the year. Many Taft students also choose to participate in service trips sponsored by the school in March and June, or through summer programs with outside agencies.

Tafties take our school motto seriously, and routinely engage in a wide range of service initiatives.
In the spring, grade-level days of service reach deep into the heart of our community.
Taft students work to make a meaningful difference at home and across the globe. Fellowships help make that happen.
