Requirements


EXPECTATIONS

The Service Learning Program strives to differentiate service from volunteering.  Volunteering is the giving of one’s time to others.  Activities that meet the yearly service hour requirement at Nerinx Hall focus on service which is, seeking opportunities to respond to areas of deep human need, challenging the dehumanizing aspects of our world, increasing awareness of ecological concerns and promoting a just peaceful society.  Through this program our students participate in service that takes them deeper than volunteering.
