My Iona

Volunteer Service & Outreach

If you are looking to get involved in volunteer service or outreach, we have plenty of opportunities!

"Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

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!
