Wondering how to continue living a life a service after graduation? Want to work in an organization where you can continue serving people who are marginalized? or want to volunteer full-time for a year (or two) of service as a way for you to transition into your future career or graduate study?

For you who may be interested in volunteering after graduation we have compiled a list of programs you may want to consider. However, listed below are two logical first places to look if you are interested to join a faith-based program, or you may stop by the CCSJ office and pick up a "Response" magazine that lists a wide variety of faith-based volunteer programs, including those in the United States and International or explore their website at https://www.catholicvolunteernetwork.org/
For you who are undecided on whether joining one or two year of service after graduation is for you, or you have decided to do post-college service, but not sure how to decide which program to choose or which place to go, you may want to:
- watch the interviewes with Loyola alums who have done post-grad service or work at non-profit organization.
