The Student Union is a nonprofit organization that specializes in collaborating with local and global organizations as service ambassadors. We seek to boldly impact our communities, whether through various local service opportunities that the whole family can attend, through unique courses and events that students can participate in, down to the cup of coffee you drink. Our location aims to be a hub for community impact and transformative relationships.
Founded in 2009 with the vision to offer a place of growth and community among the younger generations in Ozaukee County, The Student Union started out as Acacia Educational Support, offering students free mentoring opportunities at Alliance Bible Church in Mequon, WI. The popularity of this service grew and we began holding events such as JobHub to help students develop in the areas of academics and career readiness and HungerStomp to help promote community service opportunities.
As the years went by our comprehensive approach to student development has made The Student Union the successful organization it is today. In addition to our public cafe, we offer students many outlets toward personal and professional growth such as discussion forums, open mic nights, art workshops, photography and writing classes, and concerts.
