Boys Division Service Program
Foundation and Goal
“Today our prime educational objective must be to form men and women for others; men and women who live not for themselves but for God and his Christ …men and women who cannot even conceive of love of God which does not include love of the least of their neighbors—for the God man who lived and died for all the world; men and women completely convinced that love of God which does not issue in justice for people is a farce.”
- Pedro Arrupe, SJ (Former Superior General, Society of Jesus)
Service Report Forms
Service Hour Tracking System - x2VOL
We are continuing to use x2VOL to log and keep track of our service hours this year. x2VOL has a new feature where students are able to upload their signed Service Report Form. We ask that all students upload signed forms AND ensure there is a valid email for a site supervisor to electronically verify service hours. Of course students can still submit paper forms to the office, but our hope is to get away from having paperwork to submit in addition to logging hours online. You may use the x2VOL app, however we have found that going through Naviance tends to work better and ensure the use of only one account. Once they are registered through Naviance, all students should be able to see their service hour history and any service hours they have logged. Once the Service Office receives the Service Report Form for verification, we will verify the hours. We are still getting used to this online system and all that it offers! If you have questions, please contact Anthony Mattacchione.

Freshmen will complete 10 documented hours serving their local community (neighbors, parishes, schools, non-profit organizations, Regis Jesuit, etc.) in new ways initiated throughout the year on their own time. Half of these hours (5) are due to the Service Office by December 1, 2016 and the remaining 5 hours are due by May 1, 2017. Please contact Joey Lechuga with any questions.
Sophomores begin to explore how they fit into the larger community and the gifts they have to share with that community. Sophomores need 20 documented hours. Up to 5 of those hours may come from helping at Regis Jesuit (at school events like LARK, Open House, Spruce Up days, etc.). Sophomores are encouraged to become leaders in the school, taking initiative to help out wherever needed. At least 10 documented hours must come from working with non-profit organizations that serve the poor and marginalized. This service does not need to be direct service with the poor and marginalized. All sophomores also participate in a Sophomore Service Day which accounts for the remaining 5 hours. The students spend this school day serving at different organizations throughout the Greater Denver area. Half of these 20 total hours are due by December 1, 2016 and the remaining hours are due by May 1, 2017. Please contact Joey Lechuga with any questions.
During these two years, students expand their experience of service by recognizing and sharing in the diverse gifts people have to offer, especially people most marginalized from society. Both junior and senior year, students participate in two-week service projects where they work in direct service with one agency. During that time, they should complete at least 60 hours of service. As a way to further explore and reflect on what it means to be men and women with and for others in daily life, students need to complete an additional 25 hours of direct service with the poor and marginalized. Students may start to accrue these hours during the summer prior to junior year. These hours should be completed by October 31 of their senior year. Failure to turn in these hours will result in the inability to apply for winter immersion delegations and a service agreement plan. Please contact Anthony Mattacchione with any questions.
The Capstone Seminar and Project should express the culmination of your growth during a student's years at Regis Jesuit in a tangible form. Students will meet in small groups throughout their senior year to reflect on the how they have grown in all points of the "Grad at Grad." Each student will create a project to present in front of a panel of three faculty/staff. Ultimately, the project answers the question: How am I different because of my experiences at Regis Jesuit?
