The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) is one of the five federally grant funded TRIO programs at Creighton University under the Department of Education. Creighton’s EOC program provides counseling & information on college admissions to qualified adults who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education. We also provide services to improve the financial & economic literacy of participants. An important objective of the program is to counsel participants on financial aid options, including basic financial planning skills, & to assist in the application process. EOC needs volunteers to assist with the daily workflow of our office. This may include data entry, filing, copying, & other duties assigned such as tutoring. Call or email for more information.

Volunteers are often needed to work with adults enrolled in the program. Opportunities include working with beginning – advanced level ESL students in the areas of conversation, reading and writing. Day and evening opportunities are available. Call for additional information.
The mission of the Literacy Center for the Midlands is to empower adults and families by helping them acquire the literacy skills and practices necessary to be active and contributing members of their communities. Volunteers attend an hour information orientation and are trained to work with a small group of Literacy Center Students or on a one-to-one tutoring basis. Although we have more of a need for long-term volunteers, we welcome one-time volunteers as well. No special skills or knowledge of other languages are required. Services are offered on several locations including the South Omaha Library; La Vista Public Library; Millard Public Library, and inCOMMON on Park Avenue.
