Stonehill Students Volunteer

Stonehill students participate in Into the Streets Program

EASTON, Mass. — More than 800 Stonehill College students contributed more than 95,000 hours of service on campus, in the community and internationally during the 2011-2012 school year.

Stonehill is one of the educational ministries of Congregation of Holy Cross, U.S. Province of Priests and Brothers.

Students completed volunteer hours in nonprofit internships, community-based learning hours and in other types of service.

Students contributed to Stonehill’s Into the Streets Program, where they participate in service experiences that challenge them to be agents of social change striving for a more compassionate world. The program’s mission is in keeping with the Holy Cross tradition set by founder Blessed Basil Moreau to develop the moral, spiritual, intellectual and social competencies of students and bring them to bear on matters of social justice.

Students logged more than 2,000 hours in the ITS Program alone. ITS celebrated its 20th anniversary recently.
