Community Service


Between sixth grade and senior year, every student is required to complete a minimum of 75 community service hours in order to graduate – many students far exceed that requirement, finding a deep-seated passion for “giving back” that continues long after they graduate from Baltimore Lab School.

We encourage student leadership and welcome the suggestions that students submit for meaningful projects. Other students benefit from the roster of opportunities available through the school. Whether after school, on weekends, or during the summer, Baltimore Lab School students have found myriad ways to make a difference.

Student projects have included:
  • Participating in Chesapeake Bay Foundation environmental projects
  • Tutoring young immigrants from Somalia through the Refugee Youth Project
  • Rehabilitating houses with Habitat for Humanity
  • Landscaping the grounds at the Maryland Zoo
  • Cooking and serving dinner for families at The Ronald McDonald House
  • Serving lunch at Our Father’s Place
  • Collecting toys, food, and money for various drives



For service activities completed outside of school, students must submit this form to the BLS Service Learning Hours Coordinator, Amy Zbikowski, at Photocopies ARE acceptable, as is the same information provided on company letterhead.
