Oak Grove students went to 19 different locations to help non-profit organizations. Several painted the second floor of Oak Grove's Benson Hall... after its lower levels got a makeover post-flooding.

Others played with kids at Nokomis Child care, worked in the Dakota Boys and girls Ranch store, and volunteered at the YWCA. As you can see, the theme is service, but also leadership, since the work groups were also managed by students.
