Bellarmine's Alumni Service Corps provides graduates of Jesuit high schools and Jesuit universities an opportunity to give back in gratitude of their Jesuit education by committing a year of service at Bellarmine.
The Alumni Service Corps serves as an opportunity for our alums to live in gratitude and experience community, personal formation and service. The National Alumni Service Corps (ASC) was founded by the Missouri Province in 1991 to offer graduates of Jesuit high schools and Jesuit Universities the opportunity to give back in gratitude for their Jesuit education by committing a year of service as a faculty member in Jesuit middle or high schools. The National ASC program connects six participating schools in Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis. Additional Jesuit high schools began similar programs with their own alumni, providing them with the opportunity of a year of service. Like many other Jesuit schools, Bellarmine has decided to create its own ASC program - launching the first class of Bellarmine ASC in 2020-2021.

Program Details

Bellarmine is excited to offer an opportunity to Bellarmine graduates, and or alums of Jesuit high schools and/or universities who have recently graduated from college. The commitment for ASC volunteers is a 10.5 month commitment. Orientation will take place in mid/late August, and the program will end in mid/late June. Each ASC volunteer will be placed within the school according to their interests and skillset (previously determined), as well as serving in other capacities within the school.

Bellarmine ASC program will provide volunteers with housing, designated communal space on campus, stipend, and potential on-campus meal plan.

    Why Bellarmine ASC: Applying for the Alumni Service Corps is something that I have been considering since my time in high school. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, but there are many reasons why I prefer to teach at a Jesuit school. During my time at Regis Jesuit High School in Denver, I met many people that were critical in my formation as a person and as a student. The supportive and caring environment created by a Jesuit school allowed me to grow in knowledge and faith. My Jesuit education built an amazing foundation for me into college, and I would love to help others have a similar experience to my own. Looking at Bellarmine ASC specifically, I have had the pleasure to live in Tacoma for the last four years. Coming from Colorado, I had never spent much time in the PNW, but have found a second home and community. It would be a privilege to give back to this incredible community and continue to live in Tacoma. I also am interested in Bellarmine because it is co-ed, similar to my high school that was co-divisional.
