Each week, the 8th grade students serve at The Beacon, a center that provides services to the homeless. At The Beacon, Houston’s homeless have the opportunity to eat a meal, take a shower and get their laundry done.
By volunteering at The Beacon with their advisory groups, on a rotation, 8th graders are able to build the habit of outreach. For many students, the 8th grade outreach project is the culmination of their service experience at St. Mark’s. Students truly feel the impact of this ongoing project.
