Community Outreach programs allow for the university to give back to the surrounding community and assist incoming students in their academic pursuits. Giving towards these programs allows for the continuation of Case Western Reserve University's longstanding tradition of great leaders and academics passing on their knowledge to future generations.

Envoys is an immersive high school STEM education, training and college preparatory program. The purpose of the Envoy Program is to increase access and persistence in STEM at CWRU for underrepresented students from the Cleveland and East Cleveland public schools. The Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) is designed to promote the academic success of entering students at Case Western Reserve University. The program provides participating students with opportunities to improve their skills in writing and mathematics; to connect with professors, advisors, and mentors; and to learn about all of the resources available to help them meet the demands of college life. The National Youth Sports Program at CWRU exemplifies the university’s commitment to improving the quality of life for others in our local community. The program provides an enriching five-week summer camp experience that offers sports activities, education, nutrition and health services to more than 500 economically disadvantaged Greater Cleveland youth age 10 to 16.
