CARITAS: a Service Learning Community for first-year students.
If you are interested in a weekly service commitment at a Philadelphia high school, this new living-learning community may be for you. In its pilot year, this community will be comprised of up to 32 students from the College of Liberal Arts or the School of Business who are interested in living Villanova values through seeking truth - Veritas - about the world through knowledge, living the values of Caritas through service together in Community - Unitas.
Students in this learning community will share their experiences in the freshman humanities class, ACS, a weekly discussion group that meets in the hall, and an afternoon of tutoring at Cristo Rey High School each week. Students in CARITAS will learn and reflect with hall mates and classmates about the call to live a life of service, our human responsibility to one another.
