Each summer, CJ provides faith-centered and service learning experiences to students to help them grow in their faith and to serve those who are less fortunate. This summer, we are excited to offer the following experiences--
Student Leadership Conference - Boston - sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur (June 26 - 29)
This conference has a limit of eight students in grades 10 and 11. CJ participants will gather with students from other SNDdeN schools around the country to pray and explore such topics as leadership styles, social justice outreach, communication, event planning and more. In addition to meeting other students and some of the sisters, participants will also have some time to explore the city of Boston.
This mission trip experience is designed to immerse 13 CJ students in direct community service at the Taos Pueblo, working with Preschool Native American children at the Taos Pueblo Head Start program and participating in agricultural/community restoration projects designed to enhance the quality of life at the Pueblo. Throughout the week the group will engage in cultural awareness experiences, and time will be spent in prayer and reflecting on their experiences.
Open to 6-8 current sophomores and juniors who want to be faith leaders at CJ. This week allows students to grow in their relationship with God and helps students understand more fully what it means to be Marianist. Students will connect with other schools who have similar values.
