This is a full-time position overseeing the local service programs in Mission & Ministry. As an integral part of Mission & Ministry’s dynamic reimagining of the organization of its service programs, which includes the launching of the St. Thomas of Villanova Center for the Common Good, this position currently oversees 15-20 service projects for approximately 200-300 students per week. Emphasis is on developing, supervising, and empowering student leaders who will work to build relationships with community partners and volunteers. Responsibilities include: implementing opportunities for service, education, reflection, and celebration that will encourage students to learn about the needs of the community, reflect on service as a praxis of faith and life, and seek ways to be engaged in the struggle for social justice. There is a strong emphasis on creating relationship-building opportunities for first-year students in their pursuit of service. This position requires a flexible work schedule that includes evenings and weekend responsibilities. This position requires adaptability and the ability to work creatively in a collaborative environment.

Mission & Ministry promotes and supports the Augustinian, Catholic mission of the University, with particular attention to the Augustinian charism and spirituality.
