We not only volunteer to lend a hand, but we question injustices that exist and do our part to work toward systemic change. Whether you are part of a club, fulfilling a service-learning requirement, or looking to expand your own horizons, there are a number of meaningful opportunities that will leave a lasting impact on both you and the communities in which you serve.
Hundreds of Marywood students have experienced a national or international service trip. The International Service Program consists of ten to twelve-day trips to various locations primarily in Central & South America and the Caribbean during Spring Break. The National Service Program consists of weekend or seven to ten-day trips to various locations throughout the country during fall, spring, and summer breaks.
Marywood’s Alternative Break Program consists of weekend, week, and two-week trips to various locations throughout the world during fall, spring, and summer breaks. Most trips are coordinated with faith-based, not-for-profit organizations that rely on volunteers to respond to various needs in their communities. The intent of these trips is to allow students to participate in a community service experience with a program that responds to some of the most pressing needs of underserved people in our world. This opportunity intends to help students gain a better understanding of injustices and poverty in our world, as well as foster a desire to work towards change, justice, peace, and compassion for all in light of Catholic social teaching.
Academic service-learning is a structured educational experience integrated into the curriculum at Marywood.
