The NDB service learning program challenges students to put their faith into action; goals include fostering a love of service, living Gospel values, and reaching out to the marginalized. Students  practice social justice, compassion and dignity for all through experiential learning. Learn more about our Gold Medal Award Jefferson service club: Students in Action Club (SIA).

Students try a variety of service, exploring and discovering their passions. Long-term volunteer commitments are ideal. Holidays and early release days work well for volunteering! Campus Ministry helps student track service hours, which is helpful for leadership, college, and scholarship applications!

Service fairs, online listings, volunteer orientations, advisory promotion, email updates, word of mouth, and flyers educate students about non-profits and volunteer opportunities. Many organizations require advance sign ups, orientations, applications, and TB test results prior to volunteering. We ask parents to empower their daughters to schedule hours.  Parents are responsible for monitoring the safety of the volunteer site and arranging transportation.

 

SERVICE PROGRAM AT NOTRE DAME HIGH SCHOOL

At the start of each semester, the Spiritual Life Department visits each religion class to go over the NDB service learning program: NDB, CSP, CORE, and general hours. 

Students are welcome to make an appointment to go over the service requirements or explore ideas of places to complete hours individually or in a small group with Mrs. Manalo, who directs the service program. If you have any questions about service, please contact Mrs. Manalo.
