Service Opportunities


As graduates of a Jesuit, Catholic University we share a special commitment not to live for ourselves alone. We recognize that we are called to share our time, talent, and resources with the world around us.

It is a lifetime commitment—a commitment worthy of St. Ignatius' call to go "transform the world." The need is all around us. Here are just a few opportunities for service to consider:

Global Days of Service

BC alumni worldwide will unite to perform service projects in their communities. These service opportunities, both big and small, are a chance to reconnect with fellow classmates, make new friends, and share in the Jesuit ideals that are central to Boston College's mission
