Trinity Introduces Youth Service Initiative for Students

STAMFORD- Trinity Catholic High School’s Walsh Court will be the site of the inaugural DUO service fair, on Tuesday, Sept. 3rd from 10:00am-noon. The initiative- Do Unto Others – debuts a year-long, accredited program that will help students form lifelong virtues such as charity and volunteerism.

Over 20 organizations will send representatives to the fair, including The Food Bank, Pacific House, Domus, and Malta House, just to name a few. All students in grades 9-12 will visit, meet with representatives and sign-up for the activities and service they feel compelled to support.

Students may volunteer to serve food at a shelter or food bank; provide resources to the homeless in our community or work on a painting or service project at their home parish, among many opportunities.

Trinity Catholic students are each required to contribute between 15 and 25 hours over the school year. The focus is on helping students live a positive, lifelong Christian witness in service to God and to others.

Chris Woodside, the moderator of DUO, states clearly: “The goal of the service fair – and DUO itself, is to identify the gifts and talents young people have and work service into their formation. We want to see them become complete and contributing citizens- here at Trinity and throughout their lives.”
