CCEL Serves is designed to offer CWRU students weekly opportunities to get involved in community service. CCEL Serves student leaders lead volunteer groups each week to local nonprofit sites and provide transportation to all volunteers in the CCEL vans. CCEL Serves includes both sites with a flexible commitment as well as Semester Serves sites which require at least one semester of commitment. For questions about either CCEL Serves opportunity, contact Adrian Griffin.
CCEL Serves: Flexible Commitment
CCEL Serves flexible sites do not require a weekly commitment. Students can participate as their schedules permit, whether it's once a semester or once a week. Students should register through OrgSync for specific sites and dates. Transportation is provided to all registered volunteers.
CCEL Serves flexible sites include sorting food at the Cleveland Foodbank, sorting medical supplies at Medwish International, tutoring Mandarin Chinese at a local elementary school, and more. For a full schedule of CCEL Serves flexible sites, visit the following webpage.
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 is critical. Semester Serves are led by student leaders and transportation is provided to all volunteers. Students should register through OrgSync for their preferred Semester Serves site.
Semester Serves sites include tutoring and mentoring youth, facilitating STEM activities at an after school program, helping refugees with English and citizenship classes, and more. For a full list of Semester Serves options, visit the following webpage.
