Community Service at Benedictine
While community service is a requirement of our Cadets, it is also an inherent part of the school’s mission of forming Christian men of conscience, discipline and achievement. All underclassmen must perform at least 20 hours of community service during each year of their attendance at BCP.
Community service may take many shapes, but it should come in a form that is a) meaningful to the recipient and b) of interest to the Cadet. Ideally, the service work would be of a nature that would improve the student in mind or spirit (or both). It may be performed via school-sponsored events (such as participating in a Dr. Seuss reading at a parochial school), in conjunction with other Cadets (such as teaming up to help with a charitable event) or on an event an individual has found to be appealing (such as volunteering at a nursing home).
Each Cadet, however, is responsible for identifying where he might fulfill his requirement. If he has any doubt concerning the soundness of a volunteer opportunity (i.e. whether it would be applicable toward fulfillment of the obligation), he should have one of his parents check with Mandy Rentschler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, and Go Cadets!
