Hill takes Catholic social teaching beyond the classroom and into the community. Known as “Hill’s Angels”, our students are active throughout Staten Island and can be found volunteering at hospitals, senior centers, city parks and beaches, and cultural centers. They provide aid to the underserved through Project Hospitality, by working at food banks, and running collection campaigns.
Health issues and special needs awareness are promoted through their work for the American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, Eden II, and the Seton Foundation for Learning.
Summer service takes Hilltoppers to work with Appalachia Habitat for Humanity in providing dignified and affordable housing in Tennessee’s poorest counties.
For many Hilltoppers, this experience “changes their lives”, inspiring them to embark on career paths in education, health, elder care, and administration.
Colleges and future employers respect service learning, and our young women take their compassion for others into the world outside of Hill.
