Community Service Opportunities this Fall

During zero bells in September, your daughters will attend an assembly outlining the various ways she can sign up for service projects/events this school year, such as:

  1. Big Surprises Service Events: Big Surprises Service Events are one time service opportunities in which students, sign-up, show up on that date and time, and serve! Families are welcome to join us for these events! We will have four to six of these volunteer opportunities available to SUA students this school year. Sign-ups are on-going via our internal Google website.
  2. SOS – Student Outreach Services Monthly Service: Student Outreach Services is a Service Organization at SUA based on student led service. It is open to all grades. We partner with ten to twelve local non-profit agencies and students serve in small groups once or twice a month. A few examples of the service opportunities this year are - delivering a meal to families served by Bethany House Services, hosting virtual game events with adults with disabilities through Catholic Residential Services, preparing an ice cream social for guests at Ronald McDonald House, and creating Halloween goodie bags for children served by St. Vincent de Paul. Sign-Up for SOS will begin after school on 9/22 via our internal Google website.
  3. Social Justice Club: The SJC will help plan and coordinate justice education, mission collection, and fair trade initiatives for our school community, including a fair trade coffee shop. This group is open to all students and meets after school. The first meeting is at 2 pm on September 29!

FINAL CALL for the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice will be held VIRTUALLY from October 19-26: We are currently recruiting students interested in attending the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ). IFTJ is an opportunity for students to be empowered, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. Attendees will virtually interact with students from Catholic institutions from all over the United States while hearing an amazing group of speakers on issues of social justice and advocacy. Students can use this LINK if interested and more details will be e-mailed to them. MORE INFORMATION
