Service Learning and Internships Abroad


JFRC internships abroad are transformative experiences for students personally, professionally and academically. By turning the city of Rome into their classroom, eligible students gain practical, real-world work experiences supported through an academic course offering. This experience is especially valuable for students wishing to one day make their living abroad or wish to diversify their professional profile. Internships are offered during fall, spring, and summer.

Service Learning

Social justice is a core tenet within the Jesuit philosophy of faith and service, with a particular call to defend the weak, the oppressed, and the marginalized. The John Felice Rome Center takes up that charge through service opportunities that bring students into direct contact with key social justice concerns of the day.

Volunteer opportunities are available to students throughout their time at the John Felice Rome Center. Whether it’s spending a few hours distributing paninis at the Vatican, committing to regular service at an organization you feel passionate about or anything in between. Service learning opportunities are also available through coursework so you can focus on the big picture in the classroom while working to understand the human experience working with those who are directly impacted.
