Event description

Description

Join members of the Creighton community to serve and learn with our local immigrant and refugee neighbors. We will do many projects as needed including: acting as conversation partners in an English class, helping with the donations room, assisting in an early childhood education classroom, and preparing students for their learner’s permit.

Leadership Onsite:

Two Creighton students will direct the volunteer group by dividing tasks to maximize efficiency.

For more information contact Ellie Dunn or Mallory Murphy

Reflection:

Each week will conclude with an Ignatian Reflection before returning to Creighton's campus.

Sign up for each week you can come!

Please register for each Friday you wish to attend. This site especially appreciates repeat volunteers and has a preference that you attend at least 3 times during the semester.

No need to bring money, just dress modestly.
