Changemaker School
Roxbury, MA
United States
Partner Since 2014

Mission Grammar School believes that instilling love for others, empathy, and a deep understanding of the Gospel Values will support scholars throughout their lives and help them to make lasting change in their communities. They have a shared leadership model and developed a core set of values based on Responsive Classroom: CARES (cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control). Students design their own service-learning projects beginning in preschool through the Peace First Program, and the Catholic social teaching doctrine allows them to explore matters of social justice, issues around poverty and wealth, economics, social organization, and the role of the state.
