works to promote the tenets of faith,
service, community and social justice
education among the student body
and within the broader Lasallian community.

once a year to participate in the
annual Lasallian Youth Assembly
for secondary school students. The annual gathering is held each summer in June.

and Aspirants are
young men of at least college age
who are considering the option
of becoming a Brother of the Christian
Schools. Many are also Lasallian
Collegians or Lasallian Volunteers.
They are mentored by the Brothers.

particularly through the opportunity
of working and living with the
Brothers for periods of time. Through
these experiences they come to
understand if God is calling them
to continue Lasallian ministry
as a Brother.
