Together with people across the country and motivated by the Gospel call to help those in need, we are starting a movement to end global poverty. By taking action to help the most vulnerable and effect systemic change, we can lead the way to a world where every man, woman and child are able to thrive.
It’s time. As millions around the world struggle to find food, clean water and security, welcome to a place where people of faith can make a difference. We believe a better, more just world is possible. And we can turn that belief into reality if we stand together and lift up our voices.
Students who want to work in an interconnected global world require an elevated global dialogue. To be successful — personally, intellectually, and professionally — students must become "global citizens," capable of analyzing and articulating issues on a global level and active within their community, our nation, and the world.
Catholic schools form disciples, not just learners. This distinction denotes the centrality of Jesus Christ in the work and mission of Catholic schools. The mission acknowledges that we are all called by our Baptism to serve the most vulnerable and uphold the human dignity of all people. By embracing Catholic social teaching, we prepare students to be missionaries of our faith to the world.
The CRS Global High School program provides Catholic high schools the opportunity to choose to engage in the work of CRS on three levels: Silver, Gold and Platinum. From schools that choose the core Silver level to the extensive engagement of the Platinum level, all participating schools receive timely information on new resources and emergency response opportunities, educational opportunities, and tools to publicly celebrate the relationship between your school and CRS.
Platinum Level schools serve as a model and resource for other Catholic schools in their region. They go above and beyond in leading the way and serving our human family around the world.
