IMPACT is a way for 9th-12th graders in HSM to serve others through their gifts and passions. There are two areas of focus: Community Service Teams (reach outward to community and church) and Student Service Teams (reach back to younger students and kids).

Before beginning the application process, please take a moment to read Carrie Gleeson’s letter about shifting Commitment Class under the umbrella of HSM and how that affects next year’s seniors in IMPACT. 

Applications are due April 28. To apply, fill out the application below, read and agree to the Lifestyle Commitment, and commit to a one-on-one with a staff member if applying for a Student Service Team (those applying only for Community Service Teams do not need to commit to a one-on-one). Selection emails will be sent by May 15.
