"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace." - 1Peter 4:10
In an effort to promote the prayerful spirit of service, Vandebilt Catholic requires each student in grades 9-12 to complete a total of 20 service hours and 15 hours for 8th graders each school year.
The total hours must represent each of the following categories:
- a service day sponsored by Vandebilt Catholic (work off-site or work with a charity organization with the Religion Department, club, team, etc.)
- work days on VCHS campus to facilitate ownership and pride in our school (ex. kiddie camps, Mothers’ Club, clean-up/set-up, etc.)
- service to the community through non-profit organizations or approved service sites (completed independently.)
No more than half of the total hours can be earned in Category 2. The service day (Category 1) and
work day (Category 2) must be supervised by VCHS faculty or staff. All hours earned count towards the total hour requirement. There is a one hour minimum for each category. Opportunities for service will be announced as they are made available.
