Year of ServiceDid you know that 53 members of last year's graduating class are currently doing a Year of Service?
At Saint Louis Unversity, we strive to make each and every student live out our mission of being "men and women for others" while they are here. But what about when you leave this campus? Have you ever thought about taking a year (or two!) off after graduation to serve others in need across our country and the world?
Schedule a meeting today with Bobby Wassel in the Center for Global Citizenship 130D to discuss the many options available, and what program makes the most sense for you. Or check out just a few of the many options that will allow you to spend time after graduation helping others:
- Jesuit Volunteer Corps: Program where students can volunteer for 1-2 years, either domestically or internationally. Live in community with other JVC volunteers; room, board, health insurance and a monthly stipend provided.
- Americorps: Program where students volunteer for 1 year domestically. Live individually and receive modest living allowance, as well as education award.
- Peace Corps: Program where students volunteer for 2 years internationally. Room, board, health insurance and a monthly stipend provided.
- Teach For America: Program where students volunteer to teach in a high-need public school for two years. Salary and health insurance provided, as well as education award upon completion of service.
- Alum Service Corps (ASC): Sponsored by the Jesuits of the Missouri Province, ASC volunteers commit a year of service teaching in a Jesuit middle or high school in Denver, Kansas City or St. Louis. The program offers retreats, housing, health insurance, stipend, community car, and close ties to the school's Jesuit community.
