Commitment Programs

(Require a weekly commitment for 1-2 semesters.  Most allow you to try the program once before deciding whether to commit.)

 

Non-Commitment Programs 

(Come once or as many times as you would like!)

 

*We are currently seeking partnerships for more non-commitment programs.  Contact Julie Bishop at jbishop@bw.edu if you have an idea to suggest!

Weekly Programs

New participants are always welcome!

The Office of Community Outreach has a variety of Weekly Service Programs scheduled for 2014-2015.  These programs are a pretty easy way to get involved serving the community because OCO's Program Coordinator's have relationships with staff at the organizations we serve and will show you the ropes when you are first getting started.  They also provide transportation to our off-campus programs.  Some of the programs allow you start serving at any point during the semester and do not require a weekly commitment so you come when you can!

 

Getting Involved

Check out each of our programs in the box on the right to find one that suits your interests and availability.  Then, follow the instructions on the page of the program(s) in which you wish to participate.

Have questions?  Contact the Coordinator of the program you are interested in or OCO's Assistant Director, Julie Bishop, at jbishop@bw.edu or (440) 826-8560.

Service Spotlight
Christine Angiuoli (pictured above on the right) is a junior, healthcare management major who participates in Big Brothers Big Sisters each week. According to her nominators, she has gone above and beyond to find meaningful ways to connect with her "Little."

When asked why she chooses to volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters each week, Christine said, "I have been fortunate enough to have many role-models growing up who cared about and guided me during a time when I needed it most.  Being a Youth Mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters has given me the opportunity to offer guidance and friendship to my Little Sister, who has grown very near and dear to my heart. This organization has given me the opportunity to not only volunteer with our youth but the privilege to form friendships with a fun, uniquely talented and passionate group of youth and fellow mentors."

Congrats, Christine!  Thank you for your dedication.
