Volunteering at the Leahy Center

What to Expect

The Leahy Center provides volunteering opportunities for University students and individuals in the community who wish to serve others and give back. At the Leahy Center, volunteering opportunities meet Service Learning requirements and facilitate personal and professional development. Through the mission and work of the Leahy Center, the Jesuit ideals come alive and are evident in students' lives.

Jesuit education fosters development of the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. That means getting to know students personally, beyond what a transcript can reveal.
