This year's Jesuit Week of Service takes place on Saturday, April 30, 2022.

Jesuit Day of Service (JDOS) is the biggest community event at John Carroll each year.  This spring it will be an in-person event and you will be working with one of our local Cleveland community partners. 

Register with your friends! Have a great time helping our local community! Lunch will be provided after the event back on campus, dress for the weather, and have a great time. 

Activities spring clean up projects, painting projects, sorting and organizing activities and with whatever else a community partner might need assistance.  

Registration for the event opens in late February.  Gather your friends and mark your calendar!


“Cultivating–a simple word that calls forth images of wonderfully, ripe, red tomatoes, crisp green lettuce–but in the context of an experience between college students and community members it becomes much more. It is a cultivation of friendship, of exchange, of the future. A learning opportunity for all and an opening for possibilities of understanding not just how a vegetable is to become ready for consumption but how the act of planting together can lead to a better glimpse of each other, our differences, our weaknesses, our strengths and most importantly, our commonalities. It is not just plants growing in Cultivating Community.”
