Approved Service Opportunities

During their four years at Bishop McNamara, students will be exposed to a variety of people with a variety of needs. This is accomplished through identifying a focus population for each grade level. We have a listing for each grade level that includes numerous partners with whom we have established a relationship. These are considered "pre-approved sites."

All Christian service sites on the “Pre-Approved Service Site List", which meet the required focus area for each grade level, DO NOT require any further approval before a student works at the site. The Approval Request Form must be submitted for any site NOT on the pre-approved list and the student must receive confirmation of approval BEFORE they participate in the service activity in order for the completed service to be accepted for credit. Please give yourself plenty of time to get this approval.

Other Notes:

  • Check Community Service Board outside Campus Ministry and listen for other opportunities through your theology teacher and morning announcements.
  • Always call ahead to the site to confirm your date and time to volunteer.
  • Always go with another person (either an adult or a buddy).
Please contact Ms. Longest at with specific questions.
