In keeping with Cal Lutheran's mission to educate leaders rooted in service and justice, the Community Service Center creates opportunities that lie at the intersection between student interests and service.  We strive to empower students to make a difference in the community.

How we can help:
    • Meet with our team to brainstorm ideas for service events on an individual level or as a group
    • Build connections with organizations in our community that meet your volunteer interests
    • Collaboration on service projects or interfaith programs on campus
    • Assistance in spreading the word about your events to recruit more participants
