It’s never too early to give back.

Public Service

What does it feel like to make an impact in the world? To touch the lives of others in a positive way?

Cate is more of a big family than a small school. In a family, everyone helps out, and you explore the benefits of self interest in relation to community interest. You will be rewarded with responsibility and also get the opportunity to connect to the world around you through global community service initiatives.

You can join one of the many civic or service organizations on campus. There are weekly service outings to organizations in Carpinteria or Santa Barbara where you can visit the elderly and disabled, read to children, or work on environmental improvement projects. Once a year the entire school devotes the entire day to volunteering around town with your advisory groups. Or you may want join the group who travels to Mexico to help with a community construction project through the Los Niños program.
