In addition to the four-year requirement, students can apply to travel to the Appalachia Mountain Region, Camden (New Jersey) and Latin America, where Fordham Prep students have been serving the poor for the past 20 years. The program offers students the opportunity to live out the Ignatian call to be Men for Others while living and working with those in need of housing, health care and education. The mission of these projects is to provide students with a communal experience of Church, as a center of reflection and prayer, while providing direct service to those in need. Students work throughout the year raising money through raffles, bake sales, dances and private donations to provide financial support for the organizations with which they work.
