While the history books have been historically weak in profiling women and their achievements, we at Saint Vincent’s are dedicated to women – first, only and always.
Women are empowered by their gift of compassion for others, and that gift is nurtured within our SVA community. It is through doing for others, compassion for humankind, that SVA women see themselves as agents of change, tomorrow’s leaders.
And so it is, during Women’s History Month, that we think it is fitting to focus on SVA’s gift of service to our communities through our Students-in-Community Program (SIC). Established in 1974, by women, for women, the SIC Program sends SVA students into daycare centers, food banks, schools, hospitals, and senior care facilities as nurturing, responsible service providers. SVA students are willing participants in SIC throughout their four years at SVA.
We are proud of our SVA students, and the many, many SVA graduates who are today’s ‘movers and shakers in their communities.
