SCL Student Volunteer Opportunities

A St. Croix Lutheran international student volunteering at a nursing homeAll SCL students are encouraged to build servant leadership skills by sharing their time and talent as active volunteers. Opportunities for this type of service are available inside and outside of the classroom and include community clean-up, visits with the elderly, ministry to people with special needs, peer tutoring, mission trips, and many others.

Any volunteer time spent at church, school, or in the community is eligible for credit hours. SCL records these service hours on student transcripts and the permanent record. Universities often consider a student's life outside of school along with GPA and coursework when determining acceptance to college and eligibility for scholarship awards.

" I would encourage international students to join an after-school sports program or club and participate in other activities because that will give you a complete study abroad experience. "
