FRESHMAN IMPACT WEEK
Freshman Impact week focuses on the gift of God’s creation and our responsibility to care for and maintain the integrity of that gift. Students learn about the earth and the need to take responsibility for the resources we have been given, while engaged in a variety of environmental-related service projects and learning experiences. The week concludes with a day of reflection and a class liturgy.
SOPHOMORE IMPACT WEEK
Sophomore Impact week focuses on the theme of hunger and poverty. Students learn about the systemic forces that limit opportunities for many in our society, and engage service to food banks, community food pantries, and organizations that provide direct help to under-resourced communities in our own area and worldwide. The week concludes with a day of reflection and class liturgy.
JUNIOR IMPACT WEEK
Junior Impact week focuses on the dignity of the human person. Students learn about agencies that respond to various types of affliction that can lead to dehumanization, and offer assistance to under-resourced Catholic schools, nursing homes, Veteran’s Centers, and homeless shelters. The week concludes with a day of reflection and a class liturgy during which students receive their leadership pins and class rings.
*As the IMPACT weeks replace the current hour-based service requirement, students who miss one nor more days of their IMPACT Week for any reason will need to make up the experience on their own as part of Mount Carmel’s Graduation Requirements.
