Council for Exceptional Children
In the spirit of hospitality and service, the members of the Friars Club act as representatives of Providence College at various campus events such as campus tours, sports events, Alumni and Parents' Weekends. The club plays a special role in supporting the pursuits of PC. More specifically, the Friar's Club promotes scholarship and the values of the Judeo-Christian heritage through the unique tradition of the Dominican Order.
Providence College Pals is a program that creates relationships between PC students and local school children between the ages of eight and twelve. Currently, there are four after-school programs participating. The program's activities include individual and group time as well as field trips.
Urban Action is a group of students dedicated to improving the Providence community beyond the borders of the Providence College campus. Students help those less fortunate than themselves build houses, and in the process, build friendships. Urban Action runs a special program for incoming freshmen, as well as year round activities for all interested students.
