Service Program

The Saint Stanislaus Service Program helps students put their faith into action. Students are required to participate in the Service Program each year. Service hours must be completed at a non-profit organization/agency after school hours, on weekends, and/or during summer and vacation periods. We distinguish between two types of service: Direct service and Indirect service.

  • Direct service–Working directly with individuals or organizations that care for the poor, hungry or disadvantaged, the elderly, sick, disabled, or individuals with special needs. Examples: Homeless shelter, food pantry work, hospital work, hospice care, mission trips, Boys and Girls Club, etc.
  • Indirect service–indirectly supporting needy individuals or charitable organizations. Examples: fundraisers, walk-a-thons, working in an animal shelter or taking care of animals, school/parish festivals or meals, wetland restoration, beach cleanup, bake sales, serving as an altar boy, etc.

Final determination of direct/indirect service is made by the Service Program Coordinator, Mr. Tim Roberts (

Here are some suggested service opportunities. Read more about the service program in the student Guide to Life.
