During the junior year (or the summer prior) each junior will fulfill their graduation requirement through a servant leadership experience to include fifteen hours of service and a project/event that is geared to benefit those whom they serve. This experience is designed to use the gifts of the juniors to better the lives of others. Individually, students will complete one of the three types of servant leadership experiences listed below, along with a presentation to be shared with the US community. All students must submit their proposal and receive approval prior to beginning the project.
Option A: Creative Project
Students will propose and execute a project that is geared to help others by using one’s passion and gift (i.e. sports clinic with special need children).
Option B: Local Relationship
Students may partner with agencies connected with Parish, serving their clients and organizing an event/activity to further the mission of the agency.
Option C: Global Outreach
Student will partner with a world-wide organization/cause to bring awareness of the organization’s mission to the Parish community. Students will subsequently support this organization by creating and executing a fundraiser external to Parish.
