Post-Graduate Volunteer - Explore Your Future!
Considering a year or more of service beyond graduation? Numerous Xavier graduates leave campus to serve around the corner or around the world each and every year. It is part of our Jesuit mission to not only be "men and women for and with others" during your time on campus, but beyond! Where do your passions meet the worlds most pressing needs?
In most traditional year of service programs, all of your living expenses are covered including health insurance and your loans can be deferred. Many even come with an educational grant upon completion of the year that you can credit toward past or future learning. Don't let financial challenges get in the way of your desire to serve.
