VITA challenges students to make a difference in the world. The club's sole purpose is to help students reach out to members of the CSS community, greater Duluth and beyond, through volunteer experiences and opportunities to learn about social concerns.
Some of the club's functions are:
-To develop and empower faith-filled leaders
-Inspire and cultivate personal growth
-Maintain a student food shelf
-Provide opportunities for students to volunteer on a one-time or on-going basis
-Build and foster intentional communities
-Plan, coordinate and lead trips, both domestic and international, for indepth service learning
-Educate CSS students on social justice issues and Catholic Social Teaching
Would you like to volunteer on a regular basis, perhaps even once a week? If so, consider signing up for a VITA Core service site. Depending on your availability, you can volunteer as often as you are able. VITA works with various agencies in the Duluth community to provide opportunities for service for students. Volunteering at a VITA Core site gives you the opportunity to build stronger relationships with those whom you serve, be an asset to the community you are serving, and learn more about social justice.
The VITA Core sites are:
CSS Student Food Shelf
Loaves & Fishes, a Catholic Worker house
Contact VITA to get involved in a VITA Core site! Stop in the Campus Ministry Center (Tower 20) or email email@example.com. New volunteers are always welcome.
Volunteering full-time for a year (or so) may be a great option for you to transition from life at St. Scholastica into your future. For students who may be interested in volunteering after graduation, we have compiled a list of programs you may want to consider. Or stop by the Campus Ministry Center (Tower 20) and pick up a free 'Response" magazine that lists a wide variety of faith-based volunteer programs, including those in the United States and internationally.
