Partners in Urban Leadership, Service and Education
PULSE is a post-graduate, servant leadership and social justice initiative sponsored by the Marianists. It is a means of sharing the Marianist charism through energetic men and women who want to make a positive impact on an urban community.
PULSE volunteers make a one- or two-year commitment to live with fellow volunteers in a lower-income neighborhood of Dayton, Ohio. They will work full-time at a local nonprofit agency, gaining valuable leadership and career skills.
♦ Gathering for meals and prayer in the house community.
♦ Living simply in solidarity with the poor and marginalized.
♦ Engaging in a weekly Marianist formation program.
♦ Journeying alongside a spiritual mentor.
♦ Experiencing the passion and satisfaction of working for social justice.
PULSE was launched in 2015; the first cadre of volunteers began service in mid-2016.
The group operates under the direction of Maureen O’Rourke, PULSE coordinator.
