Vincentian Weekly Service


Welcome to the Vincentian Weekly Service GivePulse Page!

We're so excited to welcome you to the new academic year 😀

This is where you can sign up for our Vincentian Weekly Service opportunities on the Queens Campus. Transportation to service sites are provided by our Graduate Assistants unless otherwise stated. All are invited to answer the Vincentian question, "What must be done?" and join us for meaningful service opportunities!

Are you participating for Academic Service-Learning credit? Click here for a tutorial on how to tag your class to your impact to receive AS-L credit.


St. John's is Vincentian in tradition and because of this, we seek to instill in the University community a deep concern for the rights and dignity of every person, especially those who are impoverished and most vulnerable. Many Vincentian Service programs offer a hands-on approach through volunteering one's time, energy, and talent. Others provide a setting where the social and theological reflection helps students understand human suffering on a deeper level. St. Vincent de Paul poured out his life in service of everyone he met, and we strive to do the same. 

Want to suggest a new service site or reserve spots for a student organization/class group? Contact the Assistant Director for Vincentian Service Canile Jackson at jacksoc5@stjohns.edu or 718-990-3412.

About

Join in meaningful service opportunities with our site partners throughout New York City! Transportation is provided for all Vincentian Weekly Service opportunities as they all take place in-person. As part of our Vincentian identity, reflection takes place on the way back to campus where students get a chance to share their experience and learn from one another. Registrants will receive a confirmation email prior to service with the meeting time and location.
Hours are approved for Academic Service-Learning, however you MUST link your course in order to receive credit. You will be signed-in by the supervising Service Graduate Assistant and an impact will be created for your Vincentian Weekly Service participation; be sure to check that your impact is added within 72 hours of the event (please do not add a duplicate impact!). Reach out to jacksoc5@stjohns.edu with any questions related to your Vincentian Weekly Service impact.

What makes Vincentian Service different? 
We follow in St. Vincent de Paul's footsteps of recognizing that those we serve are not beneath us. Rather, we are called to serve from the heart, inquire of them what they need, speak to them compassionately, and be good stewards of privilege, resources, and knowledge while responding to the needs of others.
