Serving Our Community
The Carroll School has a proud tradition of service to our community. In keeping with that tradition and with our Jesuit heritage, all Carroll School graduate students must fulfill a requirement to serve others through meaningful work as volunteers.
Some students fulfill this commitment by serving as mentors or tutors in underserved communities; others provide pro bono professional services to local nonprofit organizations.
Boston College offers a variety of resources to help you find a volunteer opportunity, including a list of community organizations in need of volunteers and a list of volunteer matching services in the area. In addition, every year the University sponsors a Jesuit Day of Service that brings the entire community together to give back.
If you are already engaged in a volunteer activity, check the Community Service Guidelines to make sure your service meets the requirements.
Upon completion of volunteer service, please complete the Community Service Form.
Please note that all service hours must be submitted no later than the 1st of the graduating month. For example, if a student were planning to graduate in May, they would be required to submit their hours no later than May 1st.
