Service


As a Sinsinawa Dominican sponsored institution, each and every member of the Trinity community is expected to engage with communities outside of our building. Campus Ministry offers support in the following ways:

  • Works with the Student Activities Department and all club and organization moderators to organize and facilitate service opportunities that coincide with the mission of each group
  • Assists faculty members in implementing service learning projects within their curricula
  • Fosters connections with local organizations and regularly arranges service opportunities for student groups and individuals to minister to the community

Our service experiences range from Wii Bowling Tournaments with the elderly, to spending time with children at grade schools and aftercare programs, to planning holiday parties for people with developmental disabilities.  Every student is encouraged to share her talents and passions with a local community.

Each student should keep track of her service work by recording hours and activities on a StudentServiceLogSheet

Below is a list of organizations who Trinity High School has a relationship with. Feel free to contact these sites for more information on particular events. To see those events that are time-sensitive or “one-time” service opportunities see the “Time-Sensitive Service Opportunities” page.
