Doing God's work in God's world

The Service-Learning Center equips Calvin University students, staff, and faculty to learn reflectively, serve lovingly, and engage wholeheartedly with our neighbors in the pursuit of justice, vibrancy, and shalom in Grand Rapids and the world.

Each year the Service-Learning Center hires a team of 6-8 student coordinators who work with the Service-Learning Center staff to administer, plan, and implement service-learning programs and events. 

Important Information & Dates

Training for student coordinators starts two weeks before the semester starts and includes facilitating StreetFest during Welcome Week with the orientation board. Through out the school year, in addition to working up to 10 hours in the S-LC, student coordinators will grow and develop in their leadership skills through weekly meetings, staff retreats, professional development and conferences.
