At Westminster College, there are limitless opportunities to lend a helping hand.
Below are just a few service opportunities provided by the Office of Faith & Spirituality.
The Westminster College Chapter of Habitat for Humanity work with various Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the surrounding counties of Pennsylvania and Ohio. Each year, a group of students join this chapter and agree to become integral members of this community by attending regular meetings, and participating in scheduled work days. These students may also have the opportunity to attend a Spring Break trip.
An Informational and Election of Officers meeting will be scheduled in early September. If you are interested in participating in this organization and want to be notified of all meetings and events, please share you interest via email to the Office of Faith and Spirituality.
Work days are scheduled as projects are available.
The Spring Break with a Purpose Trip is scheduled for March 11-17, 2023 to Cross Missions in Charlotte, NC. Further details regarding the trip will be shared at the Trips and Conferences Informational Meetings (only need to attend one of them - choose which one works for your schedule), the first one is on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 at 12:00 PM in Berlin Lounge and the second one is on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 12:45 PM in the Field House Room 100.

Volunteers In Service and Action teams are under the direction of the Office of Faith & Spirituality. These service teams consist of dedicated students who are willing to volunteer their time and energy to one or more programs in the area. Projects include tutoring programs, youth rehabilitation work, adopt a grandparent, church youth work, crisis hotlines and more. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all service programs are currently on hold, unless a program project can be done per guidelines.
