Having a heart...
to serve the needs of others.
All Providence students in are strongly encouraged to positively impact the lives of others by participating in community service projects. Volunteering gives students the opportunity to link the Christian values instilled in them to real world issues and further develop & cultivate their leadership skills.
Every year our students perform thousands of hours of community service. Providence students are involved in a variety a projects aimed at fulfilling a need and making a positive difference in the world. Providence’s community service efforts extend far beyond our community, as we support international ministries and our students participate in missions outreaches in the U.S. and other countries.
Community service is a chance for our students to learn how to be good citizens. It’s not about logging hours. It’s about unleashing leadership qualities and stirring students’ passions to contribute to their world. As a result, many of our students’ community service hours far exceed the requisite program requirements. They learn firsthand how much more they receive when they give back to the community.

It serves as a lighthouse of hope for the local community to access during leaner times.
