Service Learning has been a part of Pioneer High School since 1995 when the first Sophomore Project was completed. Michael Stark and Bob Vasconcellos started Service Learning through innovative projects like BioSITE, Senior Exhibition, YMCA Leadership Development, and S-Period Service Hour.


Mike Burrell and Rob Zaccheo took over the program in 2002. In 2005, the first Service Learning Leadership class began. Every year, students in the class learn valuable organizational skills along with project management tasks as they create, plan, and evaluate various service projects on campus. The Fall Outreach Fair, blood drives, Red Ribbon Week, Diversity Week, and Earth Day are just a few examples of these projects.
