All students perform a minimum of 45 hours of community service as a requirement for graduation.

Participation in community service is an important aspect of life for all La Lumiere students. Dorms, teams, and forms are all encouraged to sponsor at least one type of community service throughout the year. The Serviam Prefect works with the Dean of Student Life to organize and coordinate the calendar of events. La Lumiere encourages students to become involved in as many service projects as possible. We believe that serving others, whether it is “hands-on” or raising money, is a great way to give back to our local, national and global communities.

La Lumiere students are very active in the larger community of Northwest Indiana, and beyond. Students participate in some projects on a weekly or daily basis such as visiting the local nursing home, helping at elementary schools or volunteering at the local animal shelter.

Throughout the year, our students also volunteer in various capacities at local social service events and campus-based events to raise funds for a variety of organizations.

Each spring, a group of students travel to Nicaragua to work with Familia Padre Fabretto, an organization supporting the impoverished children of Nicaragua.
