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
Nick Traverso (pictured on the right) is an applied music and entrepreneurship double major who participates in Big Brothers Big Sisters.  Nick is a wonderful role model for his "little" in the program and has gone above and beyond by organizing the Big/Little Olympics as a fundraiser for the BW Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the designated philanthropy of Nick's fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon.  Nick says, "I choose to do BBBS because I think getting to work with the kids and be there as role models in a more hands on approach means even more than a monetary donation." 

Congratulations, Nick Traverso, on being our November Service Spotlight recipient!  We thank you for your time and talents!
