Seniors from Jones Leadership Academy recently got a chance to learn Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity’s business approach.

A field trip took the students to the headquarters of the organization, where they learned the process of planning a project from start to finish, including acquiring funds, supplies, delegating tasks and seeing the project is completed. Students also gained an appreciation for volunteerism.

In addition to learning about the non-profit, the JLA students had a hands-on volunteer experience by building a pop-out house inside the organization's ReStore. The pop-out house showcased the many steps of building a house and Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity’s mission.

To learn more about their experience, check out this story by Channel 11:

JLA seniors will see first hand the devastation left by the hurricanes in New Orleans when they work side by side with Habitat for Humanity representatives to rebuild the affected area. The students are going to build homes and create hope for residents of this historic city.

In order to make this trip a reality, Tabernacle Church has set up a GoFund Me account. All donations will support the costs associated with the trip. To donate, click here:

First in a monthly series on the Young Executive Scholars program.

Selina Griswold split 13 Jones Leadership Academy students into two groups and gave them a challenge: Without speaking, line up alphabetically by last name.

The exercise kicked off a new program called Young Executive Scholars, a partnership with University of Toledo’s business college and Toledo Public Schools’ Jones Leadership Academy aimed at preparing high school juniors and seniors for the college and business worlds. The challenge was Ms. Griswold’s first lesson in collaborating. It demonstrated how leadership and creative thinking are key to solving problems.

Warren Woodberry, the founder and moderator of the award-winning chess team at Jones Leadership Academy, reports there are ambitious plans for the coming school year.

First, he wanted to thank Doni Miller and Neighborhood Health Association/Cordelia Martin Health Clinic for purchasing new chess uniforms for the team members.
