The Center for Service and Action is committed to enriching the first-year student experience at Loyola Marymount University through a variety of service events and organizations.
Check out the various service opportunities available to first-year students through the Center for Service and Action:
ServeLA is an annual event organized by the Center for Service and Action that connects incoming First Year students with community service and the non-profit community in Los Angeles.
El Espejo serves to educate, mentor, and establish a bond with inner city youth in order to promote a better understanding of the possibilities of personal and intellectual growth. It provides leadership, support advice and awareness on crucial issues facing the Latino community.
Underwings Praxis consists of 30-45 LMU students who participate in a year-long process of direct service, accompaniment, reflection, and concrete social change. Underwings Praxis acts as a bridge between LMU and Dolores Mission as it seeks to create an atmosphere of solidarity between the two communities.
Special games is a student-run, non-profit organization that was founded as a day of celebration for the mentally and physically challenged of the Los Angeles community. Special Games brings together the special needs community of Los Angeles and the University for three days of fun, friendship and personal growth.
Each Service Organization has its own unique mission, history, charisma and organizational structure. The members of these organizations make themselves available for on-campus service as well as on-going commitments to serve at specific non-profit agencies in Southern California.
Slice of Service
This annual event takes place each Fall. Students are encouraged to stop by CSA and find out how to get involved with our many programs including ServeLA and Alternative Breaks.
Community Service Fair
Our goal is to develop direct personal contact between students and the marginalized in service-learning experiences. The Community Service Fair is a wonderful opportunity to foster these relationships.
Alternative Breaks Program
LMU's Alternative Break Program is to promote service and cultural exchange on the local, national, and international level through hands-on, community based learning.
