Summer Service Learning Program

Rooted in the Catholic social tradition and in collaboration with Notre Dame Clubs and site partners across the country, the Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) is a three-credit Theology course with eight-week immersive service placements in communities on the margins of society. Students develop a deeper conviction of the kinship of all persons made equally in God’s image, a more disciplined awareness of the causes and effects of social injustice, and a lifelong commitment to vocations marked by solidarity and the pursuit of the common good.

The application and 2019 site directory are now available. SSLP placements fill on a rolling basis from November 1 through February 1, 2019. Apply and interview early to increase your chances of obtaining placement at your preferred site. 

The SSLP course fulfills a requirement for the Poverty Studies Interdisciplinary Minor, the Catholic Social Tradition Minor, and the Latino Studies Minor.
