"SERVICE IN GOD’S NAME”

"SERVICE IN GOD’S NAME” (SIGN) is a community service program required for middle school students at St. George. The community service requirement was developed to help students become aware of and involved in their community. The community at-large offers students a variety of placements for which they can volunteer while learning about the needs, concerns, and challenges existing in their community. It is our hope that this initial experience will spark an interest in our students to continue pursuing community projects.
