Partners for Serving

Partners for Serving (PFS) is a program that gives students at Nazareth College the opportunity to work with human service agencies in the city of Rochester in a variety of settings. At the sites, Partners mentor, tutor, facilitate activities for youth and adults, and assist with administrative tasks. Partners for Serving requires a commitment of 3 to 12 hours per week at sites, most of those hours during the evenings and on weekends. Workshops and trainings are required.
