Service Learning

The main goal of Bethel University's Service Learning program is to provide various opportunities for students to experience a life of service and to find what they are passionate about through serving in different capacities.

In addition to different types of service events each semester, students are welcome to email us in order to help them find a regular place of service in the South Bend/Mishawaka area that would be a good match for both the organization and the student.

Bethel University’s Service Learning Center exists to promote the integration of service with education. By forming partnerships with local nonprofit organizations, we provide students with the chance to engage with those in our community and to learn the importance of service as taught by Jesus. Some regular opportunities include but are not limited to:

  • Campus-wide service day
  • Packing Christmas boxes for local children 
  • Food drive
  • Labor for your Neighbor project
  • Short-term domestic disaster relief trips
