Empathy, Purpose, and Connection
The three main tenets of Dedicated Service at Fay are empathy, purpose, and connection. Craig Ferraro, Fay’s Service Learning Coordinator, stresses that service can be life-changing. “When we connect with others, and when we cultivate empathy and a sense of purpose, we move beyond ourselves.” The foundation for a meaningful life is laid while serving others. Students who graduate from Fay learn first-hand that through selfless acts, both big and small, they can make a positive difference.
