Fort Worth Forward
This annual week-long community engagement program connects students in grades 2-4 from all over Fort Worth, who wish to engage in meaningful, age-appropriate projects of value to the broader Fort Worth community. Students have a voice in the nature of the projects and learn more about themselves as citizens…all while developing a heart of service for our city!
In 2023, we convened on June 5-9! Participants learned about immigration and refugeeism, and they created a guidebook to the City of Fort Worth (designed for new residents to the community) and created crafts to sell at an on-campus marketplace.
The guidebook and all proceeds from the marketplace were donated to World Relief North Texas! The participants -- who came from four local elementary schools including TVS -- did an AMAZING job of learning and working together throughout the week.
