The Foley Community Service Center places students at programs where they can serve others and learn about community needs at the same time. Service opportunities include tutoring at middle schools and elementary schools; teaching English as a second language; working with hospice, clinic, and hospital patients; and serving at community centers and the Boys & Girls Club.
All these programs give students a concrete way to help another person, to know a person they might never meet otherwise, and take responsibility for the world they live in.
