Community Service

Cultivating Community

Kino is a school where creativity, respect for others, and community are valued.

As part of this, we encourage field trips, apprentice work, and community service as opportunities to connect what students learn in class and what they experience outside of school.

Our junior high and high school students have community service hour requirements as a part of their curriculum.

We partner with local nonprofits each school year to provide opportunities to serve the community outside of Kino School. 

In the 2023-2024 school year, our students donated their time and service to:

Sister José Women’s Center
https://sisterjose.org
A Tucson-based nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting women experiencing homelessness in a welcoming and safe environment.

HOPE Animal Shelter
https://www.hopeanimalshelter.net
HOPE is a life-saving no-kill shelter that aims to reduce the suffering of homeless cats and dogs by providing them with a compassionate, enriching environment, appropriate medical care, and loving, permanent homes.

Ben’s Bells
https://bensbells.org
Ben’s Bells teaches individuals and communities about the positive impacts of intentional kindness and inspires people to practice kindness as a way of life.

Three students groom cats at Hope animal shelter.

Kino School teaches skills essential for success in the world beyond school, including core academic skills, leadership, responsibility, communication, problem-solving, and collaboration.
