St. Jude League Community Development’s programs are designed by Claretians and other community leaders to meet the specific needs of the people they serve. Because they live in the community as neighbors, the Claretians have a unique insight into the issues impacting each neighborhood’s children, teens, adults, and elders. But the Claretians don’t stop there.
They combine their unique, first-hand knowledge with thorough, current research on issues such as education, mentoring, and violence prevention to make sure their community development programs follow the best practices recommended by researchers and thought leaders.
