Community Outreach

At NDA, community service is seen as a natural part of being a community member. All of our students find a way to participate; there is no set required number of hours for graduation.

Outreach opportunities are embraced by the whole community. Our on-going service opportunities are listed here but other opportunities spontaneously arise during a typical school year.

Carolina Hill

Carolina Hill in Marshfield is a non-profit, transitional shelter for homeless women and children. Teams of six girls volunteer on either Tuesday or Thursday for one month and work with the children. Helping them with their homework or playing with them.

Father Bill's

Father Bill's and MainSpring in Quincy provides shelter for homeless families. Twice a month, teams of twelve girls volunteer to prepare and serve a meal. They receive a simple recipe ahead of time, prepare the meal, bring it to Father Bill's and serve the clients.

Christmas Project

This school-wide project provides over 600 Christmas gifts for children at Carolina Hill, Plymouth Head Start, and Codman Square Health Center. This project unites our entire school community – faculty, staff, students, and parents.

Lenten Campaign

Each year during Lent, the NDA community supports the missionary work of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Most recently, monetary contributions have been used to provide clean water for villages in South America and Africa.

Elder Services

Teams of students visit the Harbor View Apartments, a retirement community in Cohasset. The volunteers report to the recreation center where residents come to play scrabble, make jewelry, and spend time socializing.

NDA Community Spring Service Day

Each spring, the entire NDA community - students, parents, alumnae, faculty, and staff - gather together and volunteer at a local organization
