The Juan Diego Project 2017
Every year in 8th grade, Our Lady of Guadalupe Students complete their Juan Diego Project, a culmination of their Service-Based Education. They choose a topic based on their interests, such as poverty, environment, healthcare, education, and more. Then, they conduct intensive research on that issue, using databases such as Academic OneFile and Proquest, and deliver a 30-40 minute interactive lecture to their peers on the topic. Additionally, they perform 20 hours of service in the field to gain hands on experience. Below are their culminating videos, which they created in trios. For more information about the project and about Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Service-Based Education, contact Mr. Santos or our school’s main office at 206.935.0651.
