“We must challenge ourselves – to go Into the Streets, not just for a day, but for a lifetime”
About Into the Streets
Into the Streets (ITS) is a student-led program inviting other students to go outside the walls of Stonehill and “into the streets” of our local community, to see different cultures, to meet those who struggle in society, and to help those in need (ITS Manual, 3).
ITS at Stonehill
Into the Streets is Stonehill's largest community service organization on campus. In the past few years, over 800 students participated in service on and off campus, consistently contributing over 90,000 hours to the community.
Inspired by the enduring values of a Holy Cross Education, Into the Streets offers the Stonehill Community opportunities for meaningful service experiences that challenge and teach them to be agents of social change committed to the creation of a just and compassionate world.
“Into The Streets volunteers encourages the creation of a more just and compassionate world not only on our own campus, but also in the surrounding communities by bringing their talents and passions to the populations that they serve. Into The Streets challenges the concept of the "Stonehill bubble" by making social justice issues visible and uniting passionate students who aim to make differences. The program opens eyes, creates indescribable bonds, and catalyzes students to live lifetimes of service" - Lauren Graham '15
