Congratulations to Amirra Hmidan on being selected for our October Service Spotlight!

Fall Semester 2014 Opportunities

*Please click on the program name for additional information, including the Program Coordinator's email address & the tentative fall start date. 


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 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 or (440) 826-8560.

Service Spotlight
Amirra Hmidan (pictured on the right) is a first-year athletic training/pre-physical therapy major who has participated in both St. Pat's and Esperanza this semester!  Her nominators are impressed by how quickly she jumped in with both programs and is always asking to do something new.

According to Amirra, she joined St. Pat's because, "hunger is a rising problem worldwide" and chose to participate in Esperanza because, "I love working with middle school kids.  There's no better way to make a change in society than to be active and do something about it."  

Congratulations and thank you to Amirra Hmidan, our October Service Spotlight recipient!
