Campus Service Commission
Participants go to Eventide Living Center and establish one-on-one relationships with a resident. Participants read to residents, join them for a game of Bingo or chess, and talk with them over coffee. Eventide is located two blocks south of campus (walking distance) and participants can volunteer on their own time. Here is what one former participant said about the program: "My resident made me appreciate my health, and my life much more. She made me realize that we aren't young forever and we should do things that make us happy now."

Cobber Kids is Concordia's daycare center, and located within walking distance of the college. When signing up for Cobber Kids you will be asked which age group of children you would like to work with. All three age groups (infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers) need students to volunteer time to rock, play, or read to them. The Cobber Kids program is very rewarding and fun! This program only allows twenty participants. The hours students may volunteer at Cobber Kids are 7:3:00am - 5pm Monday-Friday.
