The service program at Canisius High School offers each student an opportunity to respond to the Ignatian call to service by volunteering at least 100 hours of service over the course of his four years.

Each student is invited to grow in self-knowledge through an experience of service through a personal encounter with communities and individuals bearing the weight of poverty, weakness, and financial dependence.

The goal of this encounter affirms the goodness and potential as well as the challenges and weaknesses of each individual. The program seeks to foster an ongoing desire to serve the needs of the other, coupled with a lifelong commitment to justice.
