Community Service Projects

The Flood Resource Center Web site is sponsored by the Student Leadership Program, to provide access to community resources created through our service learning projects.  These projects began in 2007 with funding provided by State Farm Insurance Youth Advisory Board.  Students surveyed the community to identify needs in the areas of flood prevention and disaster response.  We partnered with the community and business groups listed at the bottom of this page, and created the following projects: 

High School Flood Safety Unit - A two-lesson unit including background information on flooding, how to know your risks, and how to prepare for flooding emergencies.

Flood Safety Fair with Heart of PA Brownie Girl Scouts - Cosponsored by American Red Cross of Monroe County and East Stroudsburg High School North, November 15, 2008 at Smithfield Elementary School

Delaware River Flood Museum Pilot Exhibits - a set of sample exhibits for the new museum in Easton.

8th Grade Stormwater Curriculum - a three week unit on Best Management Practices for decreasing runoff from residential, civic and commercial development.

Flood Man and the Floodkateers - a whimsical video for elementary age children highlighting what families can do to prepare for and respond to local floods.

Monroe Campus Rain Garden - a model of sustainable stormwater management, located outside the Haning Children's Center.
