JSerra students are expected to serve their fellow man through acts of charity. Although many service opportunities will be presented to them throughout their time at JSerra, student-initiated opportunities are welcomed as well. Our service program seeks to develop the virtues of magnanimity, compassion and generosity in each student through practice of the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy — especially as it relates to the underprivileged and those in greatest need.
The Christian Service Program is an essential part of the JSerra experience. Besides being a requirement for graduation, this aspect of a JSerra education is integral to the human and spiritual formation of our students.
JSerra Campus Ministry provides a list of suggested organizations with which the students can work via a Christian Service software called x2VOL as well as the the "Christian Service" page under the Parent Student Den. Students are welcome to suggest other organizations not listed on the school’s list, but such opportunities must align with the Christian service goals and be approved first by Campus Ministry.
Our aim is to assist JSerra students in identifying charities for which students can perform Christian service and practice the type of love that we are made for. There are many sources for Christian Service projects — including but not limited to:
- Classroom sign-ups
- Service organization days
- JSerra leaders spearheading project
