Arrupe Summer Program
Arrupe Summer Program (ASP) provides an opportunity for high school students to spend a portion of their summer serving as positive role models to children living in under-resourced circumstances on the near west side of Cleveland. ASP takes place at Urban Community School (UCS), located right down the street from Saint Ignatius (4904 Lorain Avenue) and serving as a partner with Arrupe to engage Saint Ignatius students, female high school students and neighborhood children in an activity-packed 5 weeks. The program encourages friendship, sportsmanship, leadership, educational enrichment, and most importantly fun!
As a high school counselor/mentor, your role will be vital to the success of our program. For the entire program, you will be paired with one or two children who have completed 3rd through 6th grade. The first two days of camp are mandatory orientation days for counselors only. Although this is a major volunteer commitment (150+ hours), the lessons you learn and friends you make will last for years. This volunteer opportunity is an option for Sophomore Service for students who have completed their Freshman year.
