Live the Mission on April 25: National Jesuit Alumni Day of Service
Posted by Caitlin Joyce on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 3:41 PM PDT
National Jesuit Alumni Day of Service brings together Jesuit-educated alumni from across the nation, along with their family and friends, to participate in volunteer service projects. This year marks Seattle University’s fourth year participating in Alumni Day of Service and it is the biggest yet with alumni participating in four states and more service sites than ever before.
Alumni chapters from Seattle University and fellow Jesuit schools are taking an active role in this year’s Day of Service by selecting and hosting service sites in the greater Seattle area.
This year’s opportunities include: beautification projects at Washington Middle School, Immaculate Conception church and Recovery Café, supporting and empowering young girls through the Powerful Voices Girlvolution workshop, and assisting the elderly at Volunteer Chore Services. No matter what your interests, there’s a service site that’s right for you.

See what past participants had to say about Day of Service:
“I participated in day of service because serving in the community is important and I enjoyed meeting other Jesuit alums.”
“I wanted to join fellow alumni and continue the Jesuit tradition of service to our community.”
“I really enjoyed meeting other caring people, especially recent graduates who don't have a lot of spare cash but who want to give to the less fortunate.”
“I chose to participate in Day of Service to stay connected with my university, to help my husband learn more about what SU has meant to me, to live out service, to do it with friends, and to introduce my goddaughter to the meaning and benefits of service!”
“I enjoyed being able to give back to the local community around Seattle University and getting to meet like-minded individuals who value their Jesuit education as much as I did.”
