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), 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.┬áThe service project will take place at and around the Fatima Family Center in Cleveland’s Hough community.

┬áStudent Leaders are integral to helping first-year students develop a commitment to service as part of JCU’s mission. Your energy, enthusiasm, and willingness to model hard work will be an important part of the first-year students having a great experience!
