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.
