Service & Charity
“It was awfully impressive to be part of a school where service, and global responsibility is so deliberately woven into the school’s culture and teachings. It was an absolute pleasure working with such great youth and was thrilled to see just how much, both young and old, were able to bring to our conversations.” Jameson Voisin, Me to We’s Associate Director of Leadership.

The Yunnan Education Project (YEP) is a program dedicated to providing education to impoverished communities as well as to fostering social responsibility with the Concordia student body. YEP was founded by three Concordia students in March 2002.

Concordia parents rock! Passionate parents make Concordia a community. On any day, parents will be on campus to help in the classroom, attend a cooking class, participate in a parent advisory group, sell Phoenix spirit wear, pop popcorn, lend their expertise to a strategic plan committee or attend a cultural or school-related coffee.
We have a long-standing tradition of student, faculty and parent-led service and charity projects at Concordia. In keeping with our ethos as a school based on Christian values, we have supported many types and levels of service both across the school and in our community. In 2010, Concordia decided that the formation of a Charity Committee at the school would consolidate efforts and provide more focused and meaningful support of a few sponsored charities.
