“Make this a better world, and let it begin with me.”

Each morning at St. Thomas’s, the words “Make this a better world and let it begin with me” are spoken in Morning Gathering. We believe this affirmation strengthens self esteem and empowers students to be change agents in our world.

Projects include different types of service learning such as:

  • Direct Service Learning
  • Indirect Service Learning
  • Research-Based Service Learning
  • Advocacy Service Learning

Students partner and support the following charities and organizations:

  • Yale Soup Kitchen
  • Loaves & Fishes
  • Farnam Neighborhood House
  • New Haven Reads 
  • New Haven Animal Shelter 
  • Soles4Souls
  • Operation Gratitude
  • Penny Harvest for local charities in Greater New Haven
