For Students

Service Learning takes you out of the classroom and into the community to enhance your academic learning with real world experiences. Practical exercise of the skills you learn in class will allow you to explore career options, build your resume and develop vital leadership and communication skills. Through active participation in your community, you can grow to understand community issues and ways of resolving them.

See the Intro to Service Learning presentation for a comprehensive look at the college's program.
