Sophomore Service Experience

 

August 2020

Community service programs are instrumental in providing the type of transformative experience that is the hallmark of Jesuit education. While SLUH’s first preference is to offer the students an opportunity to serve in a “Direct Service of Presence to the Marginalized,” circumstances as they are do not fully allow this type of service. As such, we are writing to introduce the REVISED SLUH Sophomore Service Experience to you and your Sophomore for the 2020-2021 school year. Through the SLUH Sophomore Service Experience, students will have the opportunity to complete ten hours of “Good Deeds or Acts of Service'' for their family, neighbors, and/or community between now and February 28, 2021. This is a school requirement for the successful completion of the sophomore year.

  • Each sophomore is to complete 10 hours of “Good Deeds or Acts of Service” for their family, neighbors, and/or community between now and February 28, 2021. Students must log their completed hours in SLUH’s Service Portal “X2Vol” within 2 weeks of the date of service or it will not be accepted. The final date for sophomore service submissions is February 28, 2021. This is a school requirement for the successful completion of the sophomore year.
     
  • Each sophomore may choose one or several acts of service from an approved list of sites found within the X2Vol portal (Instructions attached).  Here is a static list of pre-approved sites for your perusal. Greater details are provided for each site in the X2Vol portal. Within this portal, the student can do many things: research all pre-approved opportunities, find and sign up for service opportunities, and log those service hours.
     
  • Do you have another idea for spreading hope and joy in the community? Please share it with us! Our list in X2Vol is constantly evolving and we welcome your suggestions. For efficiency, we ask that students complete and submit this service site proposal form to Mrs. Anzalone.

We highly encourage sophomores to complete their service in the first semester! Experience tells us that students who wait until the winter season will most certainly be competing for service opportunities with National Honor Society (NHS) current members and applicants. FYI: for sophomores applying for NHS, the hours you complete for the Sophomore Service Experience can transfer over to your NHS application

Thank you for your support of the Sophomore Service Experience.
