Service Opportunities

The mission of Notre Dame College is to educate a diverse population in the liberal arts for personal, professional, and global responsibility. Campus Ministry invites students, faculty, and staff to live out the mission through service opportunities on campus, in the community, and across the globe.

Salvation Army Learning Zone

Once a week we go to the new Salvation Army building in East Cleveland. We help kids with homework, play in the gym, and support this growing ministry in an underserved community.

Kidz Club at Garfield Memorial Church

Just down the road from Notre Dame, Garfield Memorial Church has started a Kidz Club that provides a positive environment for kids every Wednesday after school. Kids come to play basketball, work on their homework, and be mentored by volunteers. We need your help every Wednesday afternoon.

Catholic Worker Drop-In Center

On occassional Thursday evenings throughout the semester, students go to Cleveland’s west side to be with people from the streets. Play games, eat a simple meal, and hear people’s stories.

Other Opportunities

Other opportunities exist, including tutoring at the South Euclid Library and helping pack food at the Kosher Food Pantry, both very close to campus. Or, you can organize your own service project!
