What is CityQuest?

As a highlight of Orientation at SPU, CityQuest invites new students to engage the city of Seattle through community service.

CityQuest 2017

Through the John Perkins Center, incoming SPU students spend a day in service with Seattle-area parks and nonprofit organizations, serving and learning about the organization's role and relationships in the community.

As a center that helps students engage in growth and discipleship in areas of community development, we hope students will learn ways to continue their involvement with local area organizations throughout the school year.
