Arrupe Neighborhood Partnership

Arrupe After-School Programs

Volunteer Application

Volunteer for spring Arrupe after-school programs!


The Arrupe Neighborhood Partnership offers Saint Ignatius High School students and area high school female students volunteer oppotunities in its after-school programs, which bring them together with children in grades 3 through 8 in friendship, education and fun. Volunteers open themselves to working with and mentoring children living and attending school in under-resourced circumstances on the Near West Side of Cleveland.

For volunteers our programs each have an aspect of Faith Formation, which encourages the personal growth and faith lives of the students as they learn more deeply Fr. Pedro Arrupe's concept of being "Men and Women for Others" through reflection on their service.

Please check out the programs below. There is something for everyone! Thank you for your interest in serving with us.
