Eight graduates of Lewis University will be serving as Lasallian Volunteers in the 2014-2015 academic year, joining young adults throughout the country who are committed to serving the educational needs of the poor through the Lasallian Volunteer Program of the USA-Toronto Region of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.

The Lasallian Volunteers participate in a faith-based service program that provides a volunteer opportunity for ministry as well as a supportive community experience where the volunteers reside during their terms of service. The Lasallian Volunteers reside in various communities nationally with De La Salle Christian Brothers and other Lasallian Volunteers during their period of service. The term of service is for one year, but most volunteers choose to serve up to two additional years. Most teach or assist in Lasallian schools or other educational missions that are focused on disadvantaged youth throughout the USA.

Eight Lewis University alumni are serving as Lasallian Volunteers at the following sites:

  • David Anderson La Salle School, Albany, N.Y.

  • Monique Cruz Cristo Rey High School, Minneapolis, Minn.

  • Stephanie Daley De La Salle Blessed Sacrament School in Memphis, Tenn.

  • Alejandra Espitia Tides Family Services, Pawtucket, R.I.

  • Yolanda Franco San Miguel High School, Tucson, Ariz.

  • Matt Halick La Salle School, Albany, N.Y.

  • Lorenzo Mendez (second year) Tides Family Services, Pawtucket, R.I.

  • Ron Jovi Ramirez (second year) La Salle Academy, New York, N.Y.

Three Lasallian Volunteers who have completed their terms of service are currently enrolled in graduate studies at Lewis University through the Lasallian Volunteers Scholar Program, including Sean Barber, Christopher Hueg and Tracy Bradley. They will be serving as Graduate Assistants during the 2014-2015 academic year.
