Service to Others:
Adopt a Grandparent at Meadows Nursing Facility and Mercy Center: Students visit and provide a social gathering for residents at both of these locations.
Blue Chip Farm: Blue Chip Farm is a non-profit, no kill animal shelter in Dallas, Pa. Coordinators for this ministry are responsible to bring students once a month or more to volunteer. Students will be engaged in helping with any physical tasks they may need such as: outdoor work; cleaning cages; walking; grooming; and feeding animals.
Habitat for Humanity: This service project allows students the opportunity to help build homes for low income families with local Habitat chapters.
International Service Experience: Opportunities are offered to participate in a service learning course during winter break or in the summer. Winter break course is Theology of the Church taking place in Jamaica. Summer course is Theology and the Human Experience taking place in Guyana. (Both courses require class time prior to the service trip and there is an application process for these trips.) Peru trip is offered every other year for non-credit international service experience.
Kids on Campus/Women with Children Program: Once a week students plan creative activities and games here on campus with the children from our Women with Children Program.
