Marianist PULSE

Goal of Program

Marianist PULSE (Partners in Urban Leadership, Service and Education) is a postgraduate servant leadership and social justice initiative sponsored by the Marianists. PULSE is a one or two-year volunteer commitment to live in community with other PULSE volunteers in Dayton, Ohio. During this time volunteers will serve full time at a local nonprofit organization, gain leadership skills and become part of the diverse Marianist family. PULSE volunteers will glean knowledge of the Marianist charism, spirituality, and missionary discipleship. Major themes of Catholic Social Teaching and their relevance to advancing justice, reconciliation, and the integrity of creation will guide the formation of volunteers. Leadership development includes community building theory with a focus on servant leadership, consensus organizing, critical systemic analysis, etc. PULSErs gain skills in reflective learning and the ability to apply and derive practical knowledge to the practice of advancing justice.
