BISHOP McNAMARA HIGH SCHOOLA Catholic, Holy Cross, Coeducational, College Preparatory School for Grades 9-12

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 specifying 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 opportunities."

Select any link below to see the most up-to-date List of Pre-Approved Opportunities for that grade.

Grade 9 - Working directly with children

Grade 10 - Working directly with the elderly or with persons with physical or intellectual challenges

Grade 11 - Working with organizations that address homelessness, hunger or poverty

Grade 12 - Working with a single organization to address issues of injustice and inequality

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. Approval is only valid for the student submitting the request (anyone else wishing to get approval for the same site must submit their own request).

Other Notes:

  • Check Community Service Board outside Campus Ministry and listen for other opportunities through the daily announcements.
  • Always call ahead to the site to confirm your date and time to volunteer.

Please contact Ms. Amanda Saunders at with specific questions.

Our mission must look to prepare students for the world they live in as well as to encourage them to make that world a better place - Father Basil Moreau
