Semester of Service
Twenty students annually take a semester away from full-time study to provide 450 hours of direct service in the Dayton community. Students grow through experiential learning, the creation of intentional community, and professional training and supervision from local social service providers. The program expands the personal world views of participants, facilitates vocational exploration, and empowers them with experience and knowledge to become lifelong advocates for social change. Semester of Service is funded by an endowment and annual grants from the Marianists.
