Days of Service

At Xavier there’s a unique opportunity for each student to serve the New Orleans community through special one-time service events called Days of Service. Days of Service is a direct service opportunity on specific days throughout the academic school year that does not require commitment to a regular service program. Instead it is designed to meet immediate and specific community needs.

Students who participate in Days of Service have the opportunity to:

    • Serve and explore the New Orleans community ​
    • Meet and network with other Xavierites 
    • Build leadership skills through volunteering 
    • Enjoy a free continental breakfast and lunch before and after the service day

Mark your calendars!!!
