                          Learning Outcomes for the Appalachia Volunteers

The Appalachia Volunteers introduces students to the Catholic Jesuit mission of the university, encourages students to integrate moral and ethical principles with their experience of service and immersion and helps them decide how to use their gifts in service to others. After student volunteers complete the year-long program, they will be able to:

a.   recognize two principles of Catholic Jesuit education contained in material or information they were given during the course of the program.

b.   identify two moral/ethical principles communicated during the input phase of the program and apply one of those principles to a field experience from their week of service.

c.   articulate two or more goals for service in one or more domains of their lives:  family relationships, friendships, college community, local community, the United States, and the global community.
