Volunteer Service & Outreach
If you are looking to get involved in volunteer service or outreach, we have plenty of opportunities!
"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and beliefs that human history is shaped. Each time one stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." – Robert F. Kennedy
As a Student Campus Minister, I co-lead Midnight Runs in NYC, and as a Spirituality Assistant I run the bi-weekly bible study on campus. At Iona, every single student has the opportunity to become a leader!
