tradition

The Lasallian Service Internship course - LSI - has been a tradition at Saint Mary's College since 1985. Formerly called "Christian Service Internship (CSI)," its goal is to provide opportunities for students to engage reflectively in the Lasallian tradition of direct service to the poor.

volunteer

Each student enrolled in the LSI course spends the entire Jan Term volunteering with an organization that works with the underserved. Students choose where they would like to volunteer from a variety of types of service sites. During January 2014, students served at 18 different local, domestic, and international schools, youth programs, homeless shelters, daycare centers, social service agencies, and community centers.  

purpose

Year after year students have returned from their month of service-learning affirming that the experience has truly been one of change: change in their preconceptions about poverty and the poor, change in their academic and firsthand knowledge of the Catholic Church's lived response to that poverty, and change in the purpose and direction of their own lives. It is for this reason that we say:

“The course lasts a month… the experience lasts a lifetime.”
