Franciscan Center for Service and Advocacy

The Franciscan spirit of service with and for others is part of what makes Siena College distinct among America’s liberal arts colleges. It is our mission – and indeed our privilege – here at the Franciscan Center to help bring this spirit to life at Siena College.

Get Involved

The center sponsors numerous opportunities for students to get involved in service including:

  • Volunteering at any of the 130 local agencies serving the less fortunate throughout the year

  • Participating in a Franciscan Service Trip to Philadelphia, Boston, Jamaica, Alaska or South Africa

  • Joining the Habitat for Humanity Club for a Spring Break service trip building homes for people in need (recent trips have included South Carolina and Kentucky)

  • Post Graduate Service Opportunities

  • Child Protection Training
