Service Hour Goals
changes for the 2020-21 school year
For the 2020-2021 school year the Service Learning Program is adapting due to restrictions brought on by Covid 19. This year the program will ask students to look at their Service Learning Hours Goals as just that, a goal. We ask that all students try to meet their hours goal (see below) but no student will be penalized if she cannot do so. This year we are also broadening the types of activities count toward those hours. We are expanding the Service Learning Program to become a Social Impact Program so students can broaden the ways they make their mark on our world.
Through this Social Impact Program we strive to help students find their purpose by connecting them to the broader community. Through new and existing partnerships with St. Louis area organizations, the program allows students to engage with diverse partners, learn from civic leaders, tackle projects with community impact, and put their creative ideas into action for lasting social benefit. This program focuses on four pillars: for service learning, civic engagement, social justice and social entrepreneurship. So students will have the opportunity to earn hours by engaging in more than just service learning. Beth Buchek will be talking to students in their theology classes early on in the semester. If you have any ideas or questions please reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
