Faith in Action
Outreach is a vital part of the faith experience at Gibbons. Each class has the opportunity to experience a grade-level outreach project in solidarity with those who are often underserved in the local community.
Freshman: Equity and Education
Our freshmen spend the morning serving as teacher assistants at a child development center that serves under-resourced families. They end their day with residents of the Method Road community experiencing the history of where they live and went to school.
Juniors: Capstone Service Project
Our juniors select, plan, and create their own Outreach projects to address a social justice issue of their choosing. This experience allows them to practice finding ways they can help the communities around them.
Sophomore: Hunger and Food Insecurity
Our sophomores volunteer with the Catholic Parish Outreach, the North Carolina Food Bank, or the Salvation Army. They conclude their day of service with lunch at A Place at the Table, a local pay-what-you-can cafe.
Grade 12: Affordable Housing
Our seniors complete a day of service at Habitat for Humanity to learn how organizations in our community address affordable housing on local and global levels. We are proud to be the #1 source of volunteer labor for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.
My service experiences at Gibbons have been inspired through the relationships I have with my classmates and teachers. When I can make a positive impact on another person it in turn affects my life more positively. Being of service to others makes me feel more whole and at peace.Maurelle moowad '23
