Latreia is a resource for SPU students interested in serving in greater-Seattle.

We help connect students’ passions, focus of study, or general interests with local agencies looking for volunteers. Service opportunities may be one-time projects or long-term experiences.


Latreia is facilitated by student leaders under the mentorship of John Perkins Center staff and partnered with the Associated Students of Seattle Pacific (ASSP),

Fall Quarter:
Saturday, October 26, 2019

With the start of the school year, Latreia is honoring educators around the Seattle area through service. This month we will be going to Seattle Urban Academy (SUA) to help with meal prep for their students. We are also going to Empowering Youth and Families Outreach (EYFO) to help with their Fall Festival.

Join us for this first Latreia Engagement Day, starting with a pancake breakfast at 8:30 am. We provide a lunch to bring as we head out to serve with SUA and EYFO.
