A.C.T.S. Hours

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Over the four years that a student is a part of the Providence family, he/she must offer minimally 60 hours of service work, which is also known as A Call To Serve (A.C.T.S.) service program. A personal reflection paper, which asks students to integrate faith and knowledge with their service experience, is a requisite component of the Theology curriculum.
