Alumni Volunteer Corps

What is the Alumni Volunteer Corps?

The Alumni Volunteer Corps is a 10-month program which provides recent college graduates who are interested in deepening the spiritual aspect of their life and developing their talents for the greater glory of God, with an opportunity to serve youth and “give back” to their alma mater. Volunteers help SI achieve the mission of the school, and are rewarded through mentoring the next generation of SI students and helping to meet the daily needs of the school.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to rotate through various departments and perform volunteer duties under the supervision of teachers and staff, which may include:
