CCEL Serves is designed to offer CWRU students structured opportunities to get involved in community service. For questions about current CCEL Serves opportunity, contact Erin Corwin.

CCEL Serves Pop-Up Projects

Join the Center for Civic Engagement & Learning (CCEL) for flexible remote and on-campus volunteering opportunities. Through CCEL Serves Pop-Up Projects, you can engage with other CWRU students to contribute to a remote or on-campus project that benefits a community organization. Topics and projects change throughout the semester and you can sign-up as your schedule allows. View the calendar of current opportunities on CampusGroups.

CCEL Serves: Semester Serves

Semester Serves sites require students to commit to a specific site on a weekly basis for at least one semester. Many of the Semester Serves sites work directly with vulnerable populations, so building relationships and trust are critical. During the 2020-2021 Academic year, these will be virtual volunteer opportunities and can be done remotely. For more information about Semester Serves, contact Erin Corwin.

Previous Semester Serves sites have included tutoring and mentoring youth, tutoring adults on the GED, and visiting with seniors. 

*Please Note: To protect both students and community members from the spread of COVID-19, CCEL will not be hosting in-person, off-campus community service for the Fall 2020 semester. 


CCEL is committed to providing all students with opportunities to take full advantage of our programs.
