Students can participate in service with local Hispanic communities as volunteers through Community Outreach of Villanova's (COV) ESL and Spanish computer classes.
This semester students can volunteer at Centro San Jose, Aquinas Center, or Augustinian Defenders of the Rights of the Poor (ADROP). Students may serve at Centro San Jose in Upper Darby on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-9:30pm, ADROP's Spanish Computer Class on Tuesdays from 6-8:45pm, or at ESL classes at Aquinas Center in South Philly on Tuesdays from 5:45–9:10pm.
These various opportunities through COV primarily serve Hispanic and immigrant communities in South Philadelphia and Upper Darby.
Participation in COV is a semester long commitment to volunteer once a week at one of our partner organizations. The volunteer times listed above include travel time to and from Villanova. Students travel to service together every week using one of the Villanova vans.
For more information on serving through COV please contact Irene Rivera in Campus Ministry.
