Service Opportunities

"The gift you have received, give as a gift." - Matthew 10:8

Doing community service doesn't have to end after you graduate college. Alumni for Others is a service program for LMU alumni, family and friends that allows you to continue to give back. Whether it's building a house in Tijuana, renovating an inner-city Catholic school or working on environmental cleanups, there is a project for you. Reunite with other alumni, meet new friends or bring your family while helping to make a difference!

To find a service project or volunteer to help plan one in your region, please contact Hannah Grune, senior coordinator in Alumni Relations at 310.338.5943 or

Annual Service Opportunities

LMU Global Day of Service

The LMU Global Day of Service is a great opportunity to roll up your sleeves and make a positive contribution to your local community! Alumni volunteers across the world annually take part in service opportunities that include beautification of school grounds, painting projects, food banks, non-profit organizations and other service-orientated activities.

Alumni De Colores Service Trip

Each year, a group of alumni make the 142-mile journey from LMU to Tijuana for a weekend of social justice oriented, cultural immersion. Alumni come together on a transformative experience, stepping beyond borders: physical, cultural, linguistic, and personal. On this weekend trip, alumni become immersed in the culture and reality of our Mexican neighbors while engaging in home building projects for the community.

Additional Service Opportunities

We work with alumni to plan projects throughout the year in addition to our recurring activities. Please check our events calendar to see if a project is coming up near you!

Can't make the above opportunities but still want to volunteer? Feel free to reach out to the Center for Service and Action at LMU to learn about other organizations who have volunteer opportunities.
