LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A group of local high school students Wednesday learned what it means to serve others.

A dozen Sparta High School students volunteered for multiple nonprofits in La Crosse as part of a Community Connection and Service Learning class. The class engages students in research, volunteer work and group discussions to better understand the needs of the less fortunate.

Students say the program gives them another way to learn about the world around them.

"We kind of just go around and help the community best we can and learn through that instead of behind a book. So we can learn first-hand how people go about their day-to-day business and try to help them,” said Sparta High School Senior Kaden Boltik.

The day began with students serving breakfast at the Salvation Army, followed by volunteering at the Salvation Army Thrift Store and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
