The goals of the community are twofold: inside the community and within the broader environment of the C.S.Lewis High School.
Firstly, we we see community as a means of building relationships and developing its members through the reflecting about of one’s life, environment, and work for others (service learning). Those who understand themselves and their surroundings can discover a meaningful use for their potential (vocation), which can help turn their focus towards others for the next 50 years of their lives.
Secondly, the goals of Baraka are bound to the needs of Bilgym. Our goal is to strengthen the community-focused characteristic of the school through building relationships with younger students and through supporting the formal and non-formal activities of the school. Additionally, Baraka members might help relationally strengthen the newly-established program of inclusion at the school and the activities of Bilgym towards the outside world (e.g. through the charity-program).
