For Notre Dame Clubs

Notre Dame Alumni Clubs

Each summer in the Summer Service Learning Program, approximately 230 students live and serve for eight weeks in 120 communities across the country. The SSLP represents a unique model of service learning that would not be possible without you and the extensive support network of Notre Dame Clubs. Thank you for your generosity and leadership in this collaborative effort which we hope is mutually beneficial for students, your ND Club, and people in need in your local community.

On the menu to the left, you will find resources to assist your ND Club in developing some of the key aspects of a vibrant SSLP placement. 

Contact Information

Ben Wilson is the primary contact person to support the work of Notre Dame Clubs with the SSLP. 


October |  SSLP ND Club commitment forms are sent out to all contacts from previous year asking ND Clubs to indicate their plans for the SSLP for the upcoming summer.

November 1 |  Deadline for ND Clubs to submit SSLP ND Club commitment forms to be eligible to receive maximum scholarship support from Andrews Scholarship Fund

November–March | Students apply, interview, and are matched for specific SSLP placements; the placement process is on a rolling basis and we notify ND Clubs and SSLP sites as each student commits to a placement. Students are expected to contact their host ND Club and SSLP site staff within two weeks of committing to a placement.

April 1 |  Deadline for ND Clubs to finalize host families, if applicable, and notify students where they will be staying

Mid-May to Mid-August | Students begin their placements as early as the week after graduation and continue to as late as one week before the start of the fall term. At a minimum, we ask that you meet in person with your students at the beginning of their placement and at the end of the placement, and that you have contact with them every few weeks during their eight-week placement to check in with them.

August | Upon the completion of your students' placements, submit an evaluation form for each student.
