Ongoing Service

One time service projects are great, but the Volunteer Center urges students to make a longer commitment to service. Our partnership with School District 186 allows students to serve approximately once a week for a semester or a year.

Leadership for Life Service Program

The Leadership for Life Service Program is a service and leadership community within Lincoln Residence Hall. Students admitted to L4Lhave the opportunity to live together, take a class together, and commit to doing service together.

Individualized Service

If you need help finding, starting, or participating in service, we’d love to help. We keep an up to date directory of volunteer opportunities in the Springfield area and frequently help students find organizations that match their interests and time commitment. We also keep a directory of non-profit organizations that may have opportunities related to your interests.
