Middle School Ambassadors
St. Joseph Catholic School is very proud to offer a leadership and service learning program for our middle school students, known as the Ambassadors Club. This program provides an opportunity for our students to develop leadership and teamwork skills while learning the importance of community service.
As Ambassadors, students will plan, coordinate, and execute various service projects throughout the year. In the past, these projects have included: hosting a blanket drive for the area’s homeless population, working the spaghetti dinner, raking leaves and hanging Christmas decorations for a home-bound parish couple, hosting a Christmas pajama and movie night, and traveling off-campus to work at a local food bank and women’s shelter. This year we will participate in an exciting international project in which Father Antony will be involved.
Additionally, Ambassadors will have the opportunity to broaden their leadership skills with their Catholic faith serving as their guide. The Ambassadors learn how beneficial leadership skills can be in all areas of life.
