There are many ways that Marymount College supports and embodies its core value of “Service.” Student service organizations, Alternative Spring Breaks, All-College service days for faculty and staff, and the Office of Service Learning – all of these “encourage our students to seek a more just world and to lead lives of compassionate service to others."
Campus Ministry has organized numerous service and volunteer opportunities in the past. These include programs of direct service to people in the local community, as well as opportunities for reflection and advocacy on global issues. Examples include:
- Feeding the homeless in downtown Los Angeles with the Missionaries of Charity;
- Camarillo Beach cleanup and environmental reflection;
- Visiting the elderly at the “Little Sisters of the Poor” Nursing Home;
- Food and clothing drives for “Harbor Interfaith Services” of San Pedro;
- Fall weekend justice retreat to the La Morita community in Tijuana, Mexico;
- Volunteer Day at the L.A. Foodbank;
- Fundraising for the Torrance “Pregnancy Heath Center,” and for the global outreach of “Catholic Relief Services."
