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.
Light of Hearts Villa
Join us in visiting our elderly friends at Light of Hearts Villa in Bedford. We play games and chat for about an hour. The residents love having our company!
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 runs 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 occasional 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.
Some Sundays, a small group helps lead activities and build friendships at this organization for male teens and adults on the autism spectrum. (This opportunity is for male volunteers only.)
Other opportunities include tutoring at the South Euclid Library, yard work for seniors with the Community Partnership on Aging, or helping serve a community meal at nearby Church of the Good Shepherd. Or, you can organize your own service project!
SND Summer Experience
Be a chaperone of student volunteers visiting Cleveland from Sisters of Notre Dame (SND) schools nationwide. During this four-day experience, college student chaperones join high school volunteers to learn about and experience the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame. All chaperones must be Virtus trained.
