Senior: Toward Service As a Way of Life

“I’ve come to see the value in community service, as I experienced firsthand how life-changing it is for both the client and the volunteer. It’s a special type of connection between clients and volunteers which is hard to describe, but it's a feeling of mutual respect and friendship that really brightens up the day."
~ RY ‘22


"My will to serve others will not dwindle; it is a part of the man I have become and the person I am still becoming."
~ Max ‘22


"I feel thankful to have been able to be a part of Bellarmine’s Christian Service Program—even in the midst of a pandemic—because the opportunities the service requirement encouraged me to initially take to connect with other people have given me a desire to connect with others even more and have inspired me to connect service to my own passions, giving those passions new meaning."
~ Samuel, ‘22


“I do not believe I would have been able to develop my love and passion for volunteering without the help of Bellarmine. . . All my experiences of volunteering, the relationships I cherished and developed, and the time and effort I put into each opportunity genuinely shaped who I am today.”
~ Jomikael, ‘22
