Senior Capstone Legacy
The Capstone experience begins in a student’s junior year. At this point, students determine a community need upon which their experience will focus. Then, partnership is established with a relevant community organization which can act as a support to the student as they plan a way to meet that need. Finally, the student begins to implement their plan.
As seniors, students wrap up the Capstone experience through written reflection and professional presentation. This allows students the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate their community service experience at Spectrum as a whole. including first, their service learning (on-campus) as well as their community service (off-campus) experience, and finally, their independent partnership with a community organization and how they were able to personally make an impact towards meeting a community need.
