Thank you for your interest, passion, and support during this uncertain time for our communities, our families, and our world.
You can learn more about COVID-19 and Creighton’s response here: creighton.edu/covid-19
If you are still interested in local community engagement opportunities during this time (ways to donate, serve, etc), check out our new webpage here.
When we return to campus, we will share more details on our local service program for the fall semester, while keeping the health and safety of all our community in mind.
In order to comply with the Creighton University policy, everyone will need to complete the Children and Vulnerable Adults Training. Upon completion of this training, you will receive a confirmation of completion. The training is good for one year and must be completed each year. This needs to be completed before your first service visit, otherwise you will not be allowed to attend.
The 402 Service Program
Applications for the Fall 2020 program coming soon! If you would like to be on an interest list for future semesters, please share your information here.
Are you looking for a weekly committed service opportunity for the 2020-2021 school year? Do you love interacting with youth? The SCSJ has a new program of committed weekly service. Sites include tutoring/helping at an after-school program with youth or mentoring refugee high school students. Volunteers commit to attending service every week the same site, same time and same day. Participants will build friendships with the youth and the other Creighton students in your group. Questions?

SCSJ Weekly Service Sites
Our drop-in service sites allow you to try different kinds of service in our local community. You can come once or all semester long, however consistency and repeat volunteers are greatly appreciated by our partners! Please note that our weekly service sites often fill up and can have a waiting list. Our community partners rely on our volunteers to attend. If you sign up and don’t attend without giving notification, you may be asked to not sign up for the rest of the semester to make space for other students. Can’t make any of the sites or times below? Then check out these other opportunities to get involved at Omaha community partners near campus: Drop in service sites.
