This month, Isomo Academy will launch Isomo Community Challenges to extend the organization’s values beyond the classroom and encourage Scholars to serve their communities in meaningful and creative ways. By the end of the two-year program, Isomo Scholars will complete at least three of the four axes of community engagement below.

The first challenge will focus on the “Heart of Gratitude” axis, which motivates Scholars to serve vulnerable members of their community during their holiday break. Scholars will have between December 24 and January 9 to submit videos, reflections, poems, and other creative projects describing their service experience.
