The Community Engagement Program is Stonehill's largest, student-run community service program. Partnered with over 40 local organizations in many different social justice areas, students learn, foster relationships, and advocate alongside members of our community. Inspired by the enduring values of a Holy Cross Education, Stonehill Community Engagement Program 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.
The Farm at Stonehill was established in January, 2011, in response to food access issues in the neighboring city of Brockton, Massachusetts. Since its inception, The Farm has donated over 50,000 pounds of fresh organic produce to our four community partner organizations. Via our four community partners and Mobile Market, our produce reaches the table of about 3,000 individuals or families each season who may not otherwise have access to fresh, organic produce due to a number of social, economic, and geographical barriers.
Since its founding, Stonehill College has been present in the city of Brockton in a multitude of ways. In order to deepen our commitment to the city and our community partners the College, in partnership with HarborOne Bank, has created the Stonehill Downtown Center for Community Engagement (DCCE). The DCCE intends to be a hub for community development, nonprofit resource sharing, and civic engagement.
The Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) works with and builds the leadership and management capacity of Stonehill students, faculty and staff, and community-based nonprofit organizations throughout southeastern Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island.
Launched in the spring of 2016, the Stonehill Center for Service & Social Justice (CSSJ) provides community-based learning courses, community-based research, and service opportunities for our students, faculty, and staff.
Camp Shriver at Stonehill College is a fully inclusive sports day camp for children with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.
