CityQuest: For Community Organizations

City Quest - Seattle Pacific University

CityQuest is a great way to introduce your organization to energetic SPU students through a day of service. Community-serving organizations within a 10 miles of Seattle Pacific University are invited to submit project requests.

CityQuest will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2017, as a highlight of Orientation week at SPU. We are excited for students to serve with so many Seattle area organizations who are building relationships in our communities.

CityQuest Project Overview:

  • Projects should be located within 10 miles of SPU's campus.
  • Projects should fill a time of 4 hours (with a 30 minute lunch break).
  • Students will arrive to your project site around 10:30 a.m.
  • Students will leave your project site around 2:30 p.m.
  • Students will be assigned in groups of 20+.

CityQuest: For Faculty


Faculty Engagement through CityQuest

SPU Faculty are invited to participate in CityQuest with their students. Our hope is that you will participate in the CityQuest day of service, helping an organization whose mission compliments your course content. We encourage you to return to your CityQuest site for an additional day of service in Fall Quarter.

“It made me want to do more community service, because I saw that it helped people … and when a train like this starts, it can't be stopped.” — SPU freshman, returning from CityQuest
