Interested in Getting Involved?

The York Road Students Association 

"The York Road Students Association (YRSA) strives to build meaningful and intentional relationships between students and neighbors in the York Road community. Through meetings, reflections, site visits, and friendships, we hope to create a strong and lasting connection with area residents, and also expand our definition of 'kinship.' By challenging our notions of community, we hope to broaden the lines of communication and establish sustainable bonds and partnerships." If you have any questions, or would like to become involved with YRSA please contact: yrsa@loyola.edu



Loyola students, faculty, and administrators looking to get involved in volunteer service are encouraged to go through the Center for Community Service and Justice.  There are both weekly and one-time service opportunities available.  Training is required. 

To participate in one-time service, please visit the HoundServe website.  If you are interested in volunteering with the Dewees Recreation Center After-School program, please contact the CCSJ Service Coordinator

One-Time Service Opportunities for the Fall 2014 Semester:

  • October 4
