Make local volunteer service a regular part of your week! Loyola4Chicago (L4C) gathers groups of students for weekly service at a dedicated site. Team building and reflection support your experience.

St. Thomas of Canterbury Soup Kitchen

Stop by any Tuesday or Friday in Damen 232 at 3:40 to travel with a group of students to serve at St. Thomas of Canterbury's soup kitchen! Please contact serve@luc.edu at least two weeks in advance for planning large group outings due to limited capacity.


Jumpstart Loyola will not continue in the 2015-2106 academic year.  Loyola students will be able to to join other Jumpstart teams in the city, but Loyola will no longer host teams and coordinate trainings.  We are glad to help any student interested in early childhood education or any education related-service to find opportunities! Contact us for a conversation or to connect with Jumpstart Chicago.


Please note: Any students looking to have service hours verified for any reason must first get approval from CSA staff. Verification is not always possible, and not all service sites allow students to fulfill disciplinary hours.
