The Center for Community Engagement and Service organizes an after-school program on campus for fifth- and sixth-grade students from Thompson Middle School in Newport. Salve Regina students are needed to help Thompson participants become community leaders, dynamic team members and positive role models. Volunteers will seek new opportunities to work with student-led clubs on campus to offer engaging activities that foster creativity and personal growth.

Volunteer Application

If you are interested in volunteering with the Thompson after-school program, complete the application or stop by the Center for Community Engagement and Service in Gerety Hall, Room 201.

Program Highlights

Each session begins with snacks and conversation in the Center for Community Engagement and Service, then students participate in the activity of the day.

Some favorite activities in session one were:

  • Teamwork: Thompson students and volunteers worked together as a team to untie a human tie knot.
  • Creativity: Thompson students were joined by the Salve Art Club on Halloween to create monster drawings and masks.
  • Giving back: Thompson students sent positive messages through chalk art and helped make blankets for babies at Newport Hospital.
  • Having fun: Thompson students toured campus, ate dinner at the dining hall, went trick-or-treating and visited the game room on rainy days.
