Post-Graduation Service Opportunities

jvc.jpg

The Office of Campus Ministries provides assistance to graduating seniors in finding placement in one of many long-term service organizations. By serving in the Joe Stella '11 at the Center for the Working Child in EcuadorUnited States as well as the developing parts of the world, participants are able to enrich their own cultural vision and come to a deeper understanding of the principle of justice. Service is voluntary, but participants are provided housing, meals, and sometimes a small stipend for personal expenses.

There are dozens of organizations to which students can apply. The best starting place is the Catholic Volunteer Network website: www.catholicvolunteernetwork.org. This site allows you to search by type of job, by country or state, or by length of desired service.

For more information and for guidance, download our Post-Graduation Service Info Sheet or contact Campus Minister for Social Justice, Cathy Seymour.
