QUEST At Wilmington Friends School

Wilmington Friends

QUEST provides leadership and an administrative structure for Wilmington Friends School’s programs in global education, diversity, service learning, and environmental stewardship. In the Quaker tradition, QUEST is a meeting place—physically, programmatically, intellectually, and spiritually—where ideas, values, and action come together in a visible and powerful way.

Current programs under the auspices of QUEST include the “Big Ideas” Speaker Series; the School Year Abroad and American Field Service international student programs; and QUEST Scholars, which sponsors students to attend leadership programs including the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference, the Interfaith Youth Core Conference, and the Quaker Youth Leadership Conference. The QUEST structure also provides coordination for all-school and multi-grade service projects, international cultural study and service learning trips, and diversity initiatives like SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) groups. Recent targeted efforts initiated through QUEST include a student-led audit of the school’s use of resources, and work toward the school’s participation and leadership in a regional Green Schools alliance.
