The Kingswood Oxford Student Ambassador (KOSA) program brings students to M.D. Fox School in Hartford for community service. The partnership goes beyond drives for school supplies and turkeys with student volunteers providing support to the schools' Pre-K to 8th grade students all summer long. Students volunteered in the classrooms and assisted with reading, writing, math and more.
Student and parent volunteers from KO also organize what is now known as "Liz's Holiday Store" in which students can use points earned for good behavior in school to "buy" gifts donated by members of the Kingswood Oxford community. Volunteers also set up the store and act as salespeople and wrappers.
It is partnerships like this one with M.D. Fox School that truly reflects one of the core values at Kingswood Oxford of caring beyond oneself. To learn more about this program please visit this article from the Hartford Courant.
