Volunteer opportunities

Because the Dearborn is a new high school, and our current 11th grade will be the first graduating class at the Dearborn, students are determined to create a culture of serving others. Our 11th graders want to model for younger students the importance of getting involved in the community. This wonderful group of students has already started to establish a culture of service by packing food for local families at the Greater Boston Food Bank.
