As students at Scranton Preparatory School, they learned the joy of serving others and experienced the impact of a retreat. They came back to their alma mater for a new phase in their professional development, offering service, making connections, and learning skills that will benefit them in their chosen career paths.
The Alumni Service Corps is a 10-month placement on the faculty at Scranton Preparatory School. The alumni volunteers or “AV’s” live locally and you can see them in action around the campus on school days. They undertake many duties at 1000 Wyoming Ave such as tutoring, running retreats, mentoring, leading service projects and assisting with teaching classes. In addition you may see them working in the admissions and development offices as well as helping out in the sports department.
ASC or AVC (Alumni Volunteer Corps) is based on the philosophy of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and challenges members to engage in simple living, hard work, and spiritual formation with a focus on community life. Remember the joy that came with serving others as a Prep student? Remember the impact of your Kairos retreat? That one teacher who made a difference in your life? That same spirit of service is at the heart of ASC. It a great way to give back. Submit this form if you’re interested in becoming an ASC volunteer at Prep.
We welcome Clare Dempsey ’17 and Jake Brown ’17 to Scranton Prep as our 2021-22 ASC volunteers.
