Problem-Solving Registration for Galvin Students
The Community Problem Solving program for middle school students is a competitive program in which teams identify a local problem and work with community leaders and residents to research the problem and implement solutions. Examples of a few of the projects done by Galvin teams in the past include: raising awareness of the long-term effects of bullying, working with the local Senior Center, helping to computerize the local food pantry and more. Any Galvin student can register for a team; however, the number of teams we are able to have depends on the availability of adult volunteers to serve as coaches and aides. For more information on the Community Problem Solving program, click here. Registration deadline October 3.
