Serve Others.  Part of our responsibility as good citizens is to use our gifts, talents, skills, and abilities to help others.  By making a connection to our passion area and serving others in that realm, our service can become more meaningful and deepen our commitment to make positive social change in our communities.

Below are current community partners that JCU works with through the Center for Service and Social Action.  They are grouped by passion area.  You can also contact the Center for Service and Social Action to locate additional volunteer opportunities.
