Urban Action


We are pleased to invite you to participate in a very special community service program.  Urban Action (UA) is a program designed for incoming freshmen that increases students' understanding of urban issues while also introducing them to the Providence community.  Through UA, students will spend three days volunteering at local sites in the city of Providence and the surrounding area - making a difference in their new community.


Project Sites:
In past years, participants have worked at various community service sites in the Providence area.  The primary work is often cleaning, painting, and gardening.  No special skills are required.  All that is needed is a willingness to get involved and work hard! 


These days will not be all work!  Urban Action is also a great opportunity to meet other students and to learn more about Providence College.  Everyone could use a head start in getting to know the people and community of PC.  Nighttime activities are also included in the schedule.  This program will be a reward for you, as well as the community.

Urban Action 2014 has reached its capacity. Thank you for your interest in the program.
