Service: For over 20 years, Marywood has partnered with service organizations across the country and the globe to extend a helping hand and bring hope to people who need it the most.
Education: Participants prepare for each trip by thinking critically about poverty, social concern, peace, justice, diversity and current topics. When students return from a trip, they give both formal and informal presentations about their experiences and newfound understanding.
Culture: Through food, music, language, dance and recreation, every destination becomes an adventure!
Leadership & Teamwork: Student leaders support, motivate and educate all participants work together to challenge themselves, take risks, communicate, build trust and grow more committed to working for social justice.
Faith & Values: No matter what faith tradition to which you belong, serving others can be an expression of the religious and personal values we share in common. Reflection, discussion, and prayer are integral aspects of service trips that allow us to connect in meaningful ways to grow in knowledge, respect and unity with one another.
Fun: Service trips are about building relationships, self-discovery, skill-building, reaching goals and learning something new. And when you do it all while serving others, what could be more fun?
