Into the Streets

“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.

ITS Student Coordinator Mission Statement 2015-2016

Our student coordinator team worked together to create this mission statement for the 2015-2016 to describe their role as student leaders on campus:

As ITS student leaders, we will motivate, guide, and support our fellow volunteers in a respectful manner. We make a commitment to serve with compassion, understanding, and humility. We will share our passions and experiences to spread awareness and promote change in regards to social justice. We will uphold the dignity of all creation by recognizing that we are all united in divine love.
