Tara Rutledge learns how to peel a breadfruit during a break from her work with Passionist Volunteers International.Serving

CUA students’ interest in service does not end with graduation. Since 2000, more than 150 graduating seniors have offered one or two years of their life to volunteer for causes in the United States and abroad. From the Class of 2006, more than 20 students are currently volunteering full time in schools, parishes, prisons and orphanages.

“I wanted to volunteer long term to immerse myself in another culture so that I might better understand how other people live, think, act, love … and ultimately to share what I learn with people back home,” says 2006 graduate Tara Rutledge, who is serving in Devon Pen and King Weston, Jamaica. She works in schools assisting teachers and leading educational and extracurricular activities, teaches in a Sunday Bible school, visits shut-ins and helps the sick get access to medical care.
