Ongoing Service


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.


Jumpstart is a national early education organization preparing children to succeed in school through language and literacy development. Jumpstart recruits and trains college students to deliver supplemental preschool programs in low-income neighborhoods. Volunteers who complete a full term of service are eligible for an AmeriCorps Education Award of $1,195.

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.
