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.

Service Spotlight
Jordan Regula (pictured above on the right) is a sophomore, broadcasting major who participates in Boys and Girls Club each week. According to her nominator, Jordan jumped right in with the program early last semester and has been a dedicated volunteer ever since.  She's never one to shy away from an activity and is great about getting the children involved.  Jordan has made a special effort to interact with the teens at the Club, which can sometimes be a bit intimidating for volunteers.

Of her experience with OCO Weekly Programs, Jordan has said, "The reason I decided to join Boys and Girls Club was mostly for fun and also to get involved on campus.  I love spending time with the kids and getting to help out the community at the same time. It was also a great way to meet new people at BW and gain a new experience from working in this type of environment with the kids.  I love Cleveland and it was perfect that we get to go there too!" 

Congrats, Jordan!  Thank you for your dedication.
