Service offers graduates unique opportunities

Post-graduation opportunities typically involve graduate school and job searching. A Cabrini graduate, however, has the opportunity to commit up to two years of service work through the Cabrini Mission Corps.

The Mission Corps believes, “it is God who draws us together and sends us forth in mission.” Loquitur believes that through the Mission Corps and the college’s mission, we are called upon to share our gifts with brothers and sisters both in the U.S. or abroad and that such service opportunities are mutually beneficial.

The Mission Corps embraces “the personal conviction that our service in education, is the continuation of Jesus’ own mission of being an instrument of God.” We agree that by expanding your education through service work, you are able to help others, while finding your place in life.

For students who are nearing the end of their four-year undergraduate journey and still have yet to find their calling, time off may be something to consider.

In addition to taking a break from classes, traveling and learning about life in another world can add to not only your resume, but can help you discover what is really important in life.

The Cabrini Mission Corps office in the mansion can help you find that it is often possible financially and professionally to undertake a service opportunity after graduation. Different financial benefits include loan repayment, health insurance, and deferment. Many people who are interested in continuing their education after their service experience have the chance to win the Americorps Education Award that offers students grants to continue their education.

Would you be willing to explore what is really important within you for between nine months to two years by working with other similarly motivated people on projects that are meaningful? This is a challenging question.

If you want to explore possibilities either with our own Cabrini Mission Corps or the many other organizations, just contact Gina Pultorak Scarpello (cmcdirector@aol.com) who can help you research your options.
