Alumni Volunteer Corps

The Alumni Volunteer Corps (AVC) is an opportunity for Creighton Prep graduates who have recently graduated from college to once again become involved in the school. Simply put, it provides them the opportunity to use their gifts to serve within the Prep community over the course of the 2020-2021 academic year.

It is ideal for Prep grads who would like to do real and meaningful work as teachers, coaches, tutors, etc., helping current Prep students become men of faith, scholarship, leadership and service.

It has opened my eyes to how many ways Prep prepared me for life after high school, and how the school continues to expand its services for current and incoming students.” — Will Hausman ‘14, former Alumni Volunteer Corps member
