Join us throughout the year for various opportunities to live out your Faith through serving the broader community and learning about how our Faith calls us to advocate for Justice.
Play N' Talk - Ithaca Youth Bureau
Our students head to the Ithaca Youth Bureau to volunteer with their Play n' Talk event which is dedicated to helping children with autism. Play N’ Talk provides support for not only the children that have autism, but their siblings and parents as well. The volunteers and staff provide play time and child care for children with autism ages 3-13.
Play N' Talk is always looking for students to volunteer and spend time with the children and their families. Volunteers will help by assisting in watching one child, your "buddy", and making sure they have a safe an fun afternoon. If you are interested in joining us or would like more information please contact Jeremiah Deep, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Loaves and Fishes is the local soup kitchen in the city of Ithaca that provides meals and advocacy services to those in need. We will take students down on Tuesday's or Thursday's throughout the semester to volunteer and share a meal with those that come in for a meal. Time commitment: 5:30-6:30pm.
Catholic Worker House
During the fall 2016 semester we will be heading to the Catholic Worker house of Ithaca to learn about Dorothy Day and catholic social teaching. The Catholic Worker was established in 1933 by Dorothy Day with the idea of serving others by caring for the sick, clothing the naked, and feeding the hungry. We will share a meal with members of the Catholic Worker house and learn about Dorothy Day and catholic social teaching in Ithaca and the surrounding areas.
