Serving each other and the community is woven throughout the fabric of Gibault. Each student is required to give 10 hours of service each school year. At least 7 of the 10 must be in service to Gibault Catholic of which only 5 hours may be completed with a Gibault sports team, club, or group. Up to 3 hours of service for an outside organization (church, nursing home, shelter, or similar) can be used to meet the 10 hour requirement. Students routinely tutor other students, work important events at Gibault such as Oktoberfest or the Taste of the Region, or collect canned goods for local food pantries.
In addition, freshmen participate in the Angel Tree project each year gathering Christmas gifts for the children of those in prison. Our students are familiar faces to Waterloo nursing home residents and government officials.
The service experience during the first three years at Gibault prepares students for the commitment needed for the 3-week service project during their senior year.
