Where Can I Serve?

Upon registering for a service-learning course, your professor may have a project for your class or specific organization to serve at.  If, however, you have registered for a service-learning course, and your professor requires that you find a community site to complete your service requirement, the Center for Experiential Learning has multiple resources for you:

Potential Community Partners

This is a site with a variety of partners we have worked with before. Although not exhaustive, it's group by category to help you find an agency that would interest you easily.

Another excellent local resource is Chicago Cares, an organization that specializes in organizing volunteer opportunities for busy people:  http://www.chicagocares.org/HOC__Volunteer_Opportunity_Search_Page.

CEL Staff can also provide one-on-one support if you need more assistance locating a good service opportunity.  Call us at 773.508-3366 or email experiential@luc.edu.
