COV: Weekly Service Opportunities

COV image

COV is a weekly service program which partners with community-based organizations in the Philadelphia area working around a variety of issues to create lasting social change. Through COV, participants are able to deepen their commitment to service, learn about the social justice issues which necessitate service in the first place, and reflect on who they feel called be to in light of this experience.

Getting Involved

Getting involved with COV is simple! To volunteer, simply visit the Campus Ministry COV Sign-Up Board on the first floor of St. Rita’s Hall. Add your name to the sign-up sheet for the correct date and organization you’d like to serve with. On the day of service, show up to the Tracy Lounge in Campus Ministry 15 minutes before the trip is supposed to depart in order to meet your leaders, sign-in, and have a brief orientation to the experience. Transportation will be provided, and the times listed on the sign-up board include traveling time.

Please feel free to contact Lisa Mehalick with any questions.
