Alumni Volunteer Program

The Alumni Volunteer program is a 10-month program, designed for recent college graduates & young alumni of WJ (25 & under). The 4 pillars on which this program relies are: community, spiritual development & discernment, professional development & service to WJ.

Through these 4 areas, we provide a mutually beneficial experience for the school & the volunteer. This is an opportunity for our Alumni to serve in conjunction with our Jesuit mission, as an asset to our school community, living as an example of service to our Warriors.
