The Call to Servant Leadership: Senior Social Justice Capstone Projects

“Through reading about Catholic Social Teachings, I grew in my faith as I learned that I should always be working towards helping those in need as it is what God calls me to do.  I have always valued justice and believed that everyone deserves to be treated fairly and with respect…I realized that this is something that I could be (and should be) doing for the rest of my life.”

Engaging Students With Box of Joy®

There is great spiritual value in creating a direct link between young people in the U.S. and their peers in the developing world. One of the reasons is that children see the plight of poverty and don’t worry about whether they are too young to solve all the world’s problems. Instead, they are motivated by raw compassion and are willing to start by helping one person at a time.
