Have you ever thought about doing service after graduation?
If you're like most Fairfield University students, you've spent some time volunteering with either the local, domestic, or international communities. Maybe you've thought about volunteering after graduation while engaged in one of those service experiences, or maybe you have a cousin, sibling, or friend that's joined the Peace Corps or the Jesuit Volunteer Corps.
If the idea of doing service after graduation has crossed your mind before, or if it interests you now, you should know that Fairfield University has a proud tradition of students serving in many different volunteer agencies after graduation, both in the United States, and throughout the world.
Is it really for me? Understandably, post-graduate service isn't for everyone. Because you have student loans or would like to get a job someday doesn't mean that engaging in post-graduate service isn't an option for you. There are many ways you can serve after graduation, some of which may even help you pay your student loans, or help you get that job you want!
So, if you're motivated by a desire to help others, to learn more about yourself and the world in which you live, and make a difference in the world, post-graduate service might be for you. We encourage you to spend some time on this website and take advantage of the resources and links listed here. Please check back frequently for new information, and for updates to our upcoming events section. We look forward to talking with you and seeing you at our events!
Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve.
You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve...
You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
