What are the benefits of NEHS for students?
NEHS introduces the values of responsibility and service-mindedness to students at a critical age through the four pillars of the NEHS program: scholarship, service, responsibility, and leadership. In addition to maintaining a record of academic excellence, NEHS students are called to positively impact their school and community through service projects. NEHS provides resources that advisers can pass along to their students, including project ideas from the National Student Project Database, fundraising guidelines and templates, and project planning tips and tools.
