Chuck Sheftel has engaged scores of young people in the work of RefugeeOne over the past 15 years. As the Service Learning Coordinator at North Shore Academy, Chuck strives to help his students understand the world and encourages them to make a difference in the lives of those in need. Together, Chuck and his students have tutored refugee youth, practiced English with adults, and collected hundreds of backpacks, winter coats, and other items for newly arriving refugees.
Chuck’s enthusiasm has even spread to faculty from 16 districts and 65 schools on the North Shore with their involvement in collection drives. In February, Chuck organized students, faculty and their families to co-sponsor a refugee family from Burma.
