Community Engagement

Community Engagement at Trinity

Neighborliness is a cornerstone Trinity value –– a value encouraged by a community that is created from neighborhoods all over the greater Richmond area. Drawing from these widespread roots, Trinity has maintained a commitment to giving back and engaging with the communities surrounding Pittaway Drive.

Students and faculty engage in different types of service and community partnerships every year through a myriad of different avenues.

One way that all students participate in community engagement is through Trinity’s community service program, Shields in Service. In addition, each grade level has chosen to partner with a non-profit for the duration of a school year to form relationships and learn the many ways they can support a cause.
