Service at Salesianum

Service is at the very core of Salesianum School's mission to Vive Jesus (Live Jesus.)

Our students embrace serving both their local and global communities through diverse service initiatives. From Nogales, NM, to travelling to distant Ecuador, as well as locally here in Wilmington, DE, Salesianum gentleman can be found readily extending their hands and hearts to those in need.  V+J.
