ALUMNI SERVICE CORPS
In the fall of 2003,. Strake Jesuit began the Alumni Service Corps (ASC). Modeled somewhat on the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) and similar organizations like Peace Corps, the ASC will consist of two to four alumni, just out of college, who will spend a year in service to their alma mater. Specifically, the members of the ASC will live in one of the houses currently being used by the Jesuit Community on the southwest corner of the campus, observe a class taught by their faculty Mentor, teach one class, work on retreats, service projects, and be involved in any number of possible athletic or extra-curricular activities.
The school would provide housing, a budget for ASC living expenses, health insurance and a modest monthly stipend.
While we have a growing number of alumni working and teaching on campus, this is not designed to be a "training camp" for future employees. This is intended to give a few individuals the opportunity to serve the school and our students in a unique way during a year in-between college and beginning their careers or returning to graduate school.
The ASC will work closely with a mentor who will provide direction and guidance both in the classroom and in working at their alma mater. The mentor will also help the group to form community together, and in the tradition of St. Ignatius to reflect on and pray over their experiences.
