Service Immersion Opportunities at Calvert Hall

A wide variety of service immersion programs are offered at Calvert Hall to give students the experience of living and working with those who are marginalized.

  • Camden, New Jersey

    Urban Challenge: March 30th-April 7th, 2017
    This “Urban Challenge” weekend gives ten students an opportunity to wrestle with issues of urban poverty in one of the economically poorest cities in America.  While in Camden, students live at the “Romero Center,” a retreat center whose mission is social justice education.  Students work at many different sites throughout the city and learn about the many ways the Camden community is trying to rebuild its image. Some of the sites include meal programs, pre-school programs, a wheel chair home, and habitat builds. Students will be responsible for making up the work on the one day of school they will miss during this trip. Applications will be available in Campus Ministry and are available online HERE.
  • Miami, Florida

    The Miami Immersion Trip is a weeklong opportunity to build relationships and provide assistance to the families of migrant farmworkers in southern Florida. The La Salle Educational Center provides tutoring and educational opportunities to 300 low income families in Homestead, FL. The community is primarily a Spanish speaking population with most students being bilingual. All of the families have members who work on local farms. Working on the farms is not consistent prompting families to move often disrupting the education of the children. Since 1990, the La Salle Educational Center has provided a consistent positive presence to the local families of the neighborhood. Calvert Hall students provide tutoring assistance and recreational activities to younger students. In addition, CHC students participate in a service project that will benefit the grounds of the Educational Center. Applications are available in Campus Ministry and online HERE.
  • Browning, Montana

    Blackfeet Immersion: January 20th-January 27th, 2017
    Calvert Hall’s Montana Immersion program gives 10 students an opportunity to travel to Browning, Montana.  Browning is the heart of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. While on the reservation, students will experience a part of the country that is both scenic and unique. Students live among a Christian Brothers community that serves a middle school on the reservation. Our students spend time tutoring and mentoring middle school students as well as learning about their lives and the struggles and challenges native Americans face in the 21st century. Presentations throughout the week include topics such as Native American life, Blackfeet Economics, and Blackfeet Spirituality. Students will also visit the Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC in order to prepare for the trip. Students will be responsible for the work they miss during that week of school, and should take that into before applying. Applications for the Montana trip will be available in Campus Ministry and online HERE.
