Here at La Salle Academy, we offer many opportunities for service in our school community, our local community, our state,
and in other parts of our nation and the world. Through the Campus Ministry office students can volunteer for many different types of service, including working with children, the elderly, helping with cleanup projects, distributing food to those in need, and many other service options.

On December 15th Campus Ministry and Lasallian Youth alongside many students celebrated their annual Christmas party at Mcauley Village. Gifts were graciously donated and wrapped by the Women's soccer team and pajama sets were given to every child thanks to our PALS group. Out of the kindness of his heart, senior, Bob Evangelista 23' dressed up as Santa to surprise the children. He put a smile on many of the children's hearts. La Salle Academy is so blessed to have so many students who are continuously willing to give to those who have less. Everyone played games, made crafts, opened presents, and much more.
La Salle Academy offers an array of clubs, many of which further the Lasallian mission. La Salle Academy is proud of its constant strides in giving back to those who are less fortunate as well as giving back with kindness.

SOCIAL CONCERNS -
The Social Concerns group is devoted to helping the less fortunate and is dedicated to those living in poverty. The group’s principal focus is serving the poor of Rhode Island as well as our twinned school in Kenya. If there is a natural disaster elsewhere, however, we will respond with help. The group sponsors the Rice Bowl/Twinning fundraising during the weeks of Lent, the Thanksgiving Drive by collecting money for local agencies, and the Adopt-a-Family program during Advent. For Christmas, each homeroom will “adopt-a-family” in need in RI and allow them to have a Merry Christmas. This is a very rewarding activity and aims for 100% school participation. As other needs occur, this group is ready, willing, and able to help.
YOUTH IN ACTION -
This group focuses on promoting and sustaining a healthy lifestyle. The issues of underage substance abuse, and stress/anxiety, which factor into a student’s overall character and school experience are addressed in weekly meetings and school-wide activities. Students in this group compete in the annual Mocktail Competition, facilitate Prom Promises and Red-Ribbon Week, and bring awareness to the health and safety of all students through advocacy programming.
