JCU Community Service Concludes Summer Session with Gelato for Volunteers

On June 20, the John Cabot University Community Service Program concluded the first Summer Session. Eight students were awarded with Community Service Certificates in recognition of their volunteer work this summer.

The Community Service Program offers a variety of opportunities to lend a hand. Every semester, JCU cooperates with the Ronda del Caffèlatte e Dolci and distributes breakfast in Piazza Mastai to the homeless and needy of Trastevere. The STAND Club, a student-led division of the Genocide Intervention Network, volunteers at the Joel Nafuma Refugee Center by distributing toiletries, food, and other necessities to refugees. Students also volunteer by teaching English at Casa Internazionale delle Donne, a shelter for women who have been victims of violence.

To thank volunteers Emily King, Heiley Hernandez, and Sean Severson for their hard work, the Student Services Office treated them to gelato. The students then walked over to Piazza Mastai, remembering the good times they shared while giving out breakfast to those in need.

The Student Services Office looks forward to welcoming new volunteers at the Community Service Fair, hosted at the beginning of each semester so that students can learn more about the numerous volunteer opportunities available at JCU.
