We have an obligation, as Christians, to help others in need. The greatest gift we can give is ourselves: love of others and respect for human dignity.


Extracurricular Service

Students who complete service outside of their required Christian Service are encouraged to fill out an Extracurricular Service Form. These are hours that are “extra” in one of two ways: (1) If you go over the required number of hours assigned for your year and/or (2) Any service done outside of the curricular requirement or SJC Flex Hours, such as working with animals. These hours are added to the student's transcript to show that he or she went above and beyond the St. John's requirement!

Lasallian Youth

Lasallian Youth is open to all students. It offers the student a variety of opportunities to minister to the economically poor through direct service and education in the spirit of St. John Baptist de La Salle. Members of Lasallian Youth assist in building a faith-filled community at St. John’s. Activities include collecting items for food and clothing drives, mission collections, service activities and tutoring grade school students at the San Miguel School in Washington, DC. This group also assists other school clubs, teams and faculty groups plan and participate in service projects.

Service Immersion Trips

Interested in traveling outside the DC area to serve others? Students in the Christian Service Immersion Program travel around the country to work in communities that need volunteers. These trips are counted as 40 hours of Christian Service.
