Alumni

Alumni Service Corps

Now in its 18th year, the ASC is a ten-month program for young Gonzaga graduates who are dedicated to service and community life.
Participants live together in housing that the school provides and receive a monthly living stipend while they work to serve Gonzaga’s greatest need at any moment—as substitute teachers, coaches, club moderators, and various other roles. ASC members also assist with Campus Ministry, the Library, the Office of Student Services, and other departments around the school. 

ASC participants have a unique opportunity to serve Gonzaga, while gaining valuable work experience and discerning a career path. The program begins with an orientation and retreat in mid-August and ends the following June. In addition to work at the school, ASC participants also take part in a community and spirituality program that is grounded in the same values and traditions of their Jesuit education at Gonzaga.
