CSJ is proud to announce that the Provider Scholars have contributed more than 2,000 service hours in the community in the 2013-14 academic year.
While 15 service hours are required every semester for each the 70-plus Provider Scholars, nearly 70 percent of them did more than the required service in the fall semester.
“This past year College of St. Joseph students were engaged in numerous community engagement initiatives, from working with at-risk children to helping provide food to working-class families. Through the Provider Scholarship Program students are educated on issues surrounding the Rutland community while collectively working to address these issues. The impact of their work is tremendous, and we commend them for living out CSJ’s mission of service to others,” said Meggan Lloyd, community engagement coordinator.
Representatives from some of our partner agencies are planning to attend the event.
The students worked with many area organizations this year, including:
- Dismas House
- Mandala House
- Rutland Area Farm and Food Link
- Vermont Achievement Center
- Community Cupboard
- Boys and Girls Club of Rutland County
- Rutland County Women’s Network and Shelter
- Whitehall Elementary School
- Habitat for Humanity
- Christ the King School
- Bardwell House
To celebrate our students’ accomplishments we will hold a Provider Scholarship Program Reflection and Recognition event at 3:50 p.m. Friday, May 2, in the Tuttle Hall Theater.
