In Acts 20:35, St. Paul states, “I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak,
remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘it is more blessed to give than to receive.’ “

  • 4 Hours of Service to or at Vandebilt organized by Vandebilt (published on Parent Info Hub)
  • 6 Hours (8th grade) or 10 Hours (9th-12th grade) at approved non-profit organizations like churches or charitable organizations as determined by the student and his/her family.

To promote a prayerful approach to service while fostering community within our school, Vandebilt Catholic will provide opportunities for students to fulfill their service requirements. On days throughout the summer and fall, there will be an opportunity for students to work together to do service projects. Students will be required to sign-up online as there are a limited number of spots available for each day. Service sites and dates will vary and students are encouraged to find the type of work that reflects their passion and their gifts. Dates, times,and locations will be posted during the month of June on the Parent Information Hub under “Service Hours”. Any hours done independently by students must be completed at a non-profit organization in order for them to be accepted. All information regarding service hours will be posted on the VCH Parent Information Hub or in the front office at school. This information will be updated frequently with a list of service days, links to sign up for the days, and as opportunities and requests from the community arise.

Any questions regarding service hours shouldbe directed to Mrs. Erin Wagner at ewagner@htdiocese.org.
