“Thanks to magnanimity, we can always look at the horizon from the position where we are. That means being able to do the little things of every day with a big heart open to God and to others. That means being able to appreciate the small things inside large horizons, those of the kingdom of God.”

                                                                         ~ Pope Francis

The Community Service Program at Loyola is committed to providing service opportunities that help foster compassion and a spirit of generosity in each of our students.  It is our hope that these service experiences will help students view the world with open hearts, challenging them to be “Men for and with Others.”

The Community Service Center is in the 500 building next to Cub Corner.  Our entrances are well marked and visible from Malloy Commons.  The Center is open from 7:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. most school days.

    COMMUNITY SERVICE KEY ACTIVITIES

    2016-2017 School Year

     

                HSPT-8 Tutoring Program – for under-resourced, inner-city grade schools

    Participation in this program is a Freshman Community Service Requirement. All members of the freshman class are required to take part in this program by volunteering for a minimum of two-HSPT-8 tutoring sessions.  While two sessions are required, we do encourage volunteering for additional sessions. 

     

    The HSPT-8 Program is offered free of charge to over six-hundred,  eighth grade students from under-resourced inner city schools and is made possible due to the generosity of the Loyola Community.  The HSPT-8 Program provides tutoring in mathematics, English and interview skills.  This is a team effort that includes Loyola students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni volunteers working towards a common goal of enhancing the educational opportunities of the participating eighth grade students.  Your role will be to serve as a tutor for students enrolled in this program.
