StreetFest International

Helping alumni serve in their communities

StreetFest International is an invitation for all alumni to continue the Calvin tradition of "serving to learn and learning to serve." Through this project, created by the alumni board, alumni will work together, in conjunction with their local alumni network, to serve our Lord and learn about His creation. Choose any day during September to make a difference in your own community!
