One-Time Service Opportunities

Various sites
Cleveland ,  OH  44118

Phone: (216) 397-4698

Description:
One Time Projects and Special Events include special service activities that do not happen on a regular basis, but which may be of interest to the JCU community. These service activities are open to JCU students, staff, faculty, and administration, and can be a good introduction to service for those who've never tried it before.

What we do there:
One Time Projects and Special Event service activities can vary. Some involve travel to an off-site location; others happen right here at JCU. Some involve direct service, where participants are interacting with others; others involve indirect service, providing support for a community group or organization.
