Paving the Road to Recovery
Nathan and Jason, our PSL volunteers at TriPoint, are assisting staff and patients in the PACU and physical therapy programs. In addition to perfecting their bedside manner, the experience familiarizes students with day-to-day operations at the hospital.
Cooking up Meals at Karpos
Every Monday afternoon, a carload of PSL volunteers arrives at Karpos, a meal ministry program in downtown Painesville. These volunteers assist in meeting the basic needs of people experiencing poverty by preparing and serving wholesome meals alongside volunteers from St. James church.
Serving Others Overseas
While her studies may have taken her to the Pacific coast, Tayler Sbrocco '13 did not leave her passion for serving others in Northeast Ohio. Tayler is currently a graduate student at the USC Davis School of Gerontology, and she makes an intentional choice to balance her rigorous studies with a variety of service work in the Los Angeles area and beyond.
In the summer of 2018, Tayler traveled to Lourdes, France on a service pilgrimage with a group of students, faculty, alumni from the University of Southern California. This extended trip provided her with the opportunity to serve those visiting the area, especially those with accessibility issues, and gave her the chance to connect closely with pilgrims from around the world. Tayler reflected that, "being able to aid individuals... filled my heart with joy."

Congratulations to the
Summer of Service
The Perry Service Learning S.O.S. program is designed for rising seniors to complete some or all of their required service hours for PSL while helping to sustain vital programs in our community. Students who complete 10 hours of service over the summer will earn a reduced service requirement during the last 5 weeks of the school year. Students who complete 100 hours of service over the summer will fulfill their PSL volunteer requirements and will not be required to volunteer during the school year.
