The Ozanam Center for Service Learning holds day-, weekend-, or week-long immersion retreats and workshops. Our hope is to educate and challenge participants to connect the lived realties of neighbors to issues of social justice; to engage in transformational relationships; and to grow a commitment to long-term solutions supporting our neighbors in need.

From two-hour poverty simulations to weeklong retreats and immersion experiences, the Ozanam Center has something for everyone.
