Description

Article on the senior Shared Life program and its success.

As of 1991: MUHS logged over 285,000 total hours of community service given during the 18 years of the Senior Shared Life project during which students worked at inner-city grade schools, nursing homes, hospitals, day-care centers, facilities for the physically and mentally disabled and a wide variety of specialized service agencies; 75 different sites throughout the MKE area and 3 out-of-town sites (St. Coletta’s School in Jefferson, the Glenmary Missions in Kentucky, and the St. Francis Indian School in South Dakota).

This article includes student reflections including students who worked at the Glenmary Mission who said, “We learned that these people, no matter what their problems were, are rich in spirit and are willing to share that spirit with us.” The principal of school that MUHS students volunteered at said, “My only disappointment is that today is their last day!”
Pictures of students volunteering are also included in this article.
