Students use the MobileServe App to track service hours. Hours can be done throughout the year, both in school and out of school. There are many opportunities throughout the year! The Dean of Students, Mr. Dan Bumpus, provides a list of service opportunities as they become available for our STARS. Below is a list of currently available volunteer opportunities. Mr. Bumpus communicates all opportunities via email to the student body.

I wanted to present another volunteer opportunity for your students.  We are in need of childcare assistance during Mass on Sundays from 10:15 –11:45 am in our Smile Room.  We have one adult volunteer present at all times but the extra help would be great!  Any interested students can contact:

Our partners at Ascension Providence Novi are staffing a booth at the Michigan State Fair over Labor Day weekend. It is being held at Suburban Showcase on Friday-Monday. Shifts are 4 hours, and volunteers will receive some perks/bling and a wrist band to ride the rides unlimited after their shift (that day only) Volunteers must be at least 16, and sign up in advance. I’m including the link to the sign up genius, with all of the requirements and perks. It would really help if we could send a cohort of our students there—they do not need to be part of the internship program!!

If students have questions, they can ask Ms. Lucia by email! – lsmerage@saintcatherineacademy.org
