At Delbarton, we live committed; through service, we understand the deep power of connection and brotherhood.
On September 14, our students listened to a quick "get involved" pitch on why service is so essential to life at Delbarton. With 100% of our students volunteering in service participation, the Community Service Fair gives them the opportunity to learn about each of our 23 campus service projects and sign up for the ones they feel most called to.
Options range from Neighborhood House and EPOCH (tutoring handicapped children) to our yearly Thanksgiving Food Drive and Christmas Toy Drive. The Greener Wave to address environmental issues. The Raising Hope Walk shines the light on mental illness and suicide, and Solidarity Sleepout supports the mission of Covenant House.
Several offerings involve travel: BEADS (Benedictines of East Africa and Delbarton Students) sends students to Africa, Bethlehem Farms is a week long service/retreat experience at a Catholic community in rural West Virginia, Operation Smile sends boys to sites around the world and From Houses to Homes recruits boys to build sturdy cinder block homes for families in Guatemala
There are many opportunities to tutor and mentor younger brothers, raise funds and awareness for special causes and travel the world while helping others. Upperclassmen used their own experiences to encourage younger boys to get involved and spoke about how casual interest in a program turned into a passion for helping others.
The annual Community Service Fair successful launches another year of Delbarton community outreach locally, nationally and globally as our students are ready to put in the work and make a difference!
