John Carroll University has a strong tradition of service to the Cleveland community and beyond. The Cleveland Neighborhood Project will help welcome all first-year students to this proud JCU tradition. This Fall (2014), as part of the University’s commitment to Living the Mission, the Cleveland Neighborhood Project will take place on Thursday, August 28th.

Teams of first-year students, accompanied by current JCU students, faculty, staff, and administrators, will take part in a wide variety of service projects such as painting porches, yard work, and clean-up activities at a neighborhood center. The service project will take place at and around the Fatima Family Center in Cleveland’s Hough community.
