Service Learning

Service Learning offers you the opportunity to:

  • participate in an organized project to address a specific local need
  • develop your academic skills
  • foster your sense of  responsibility and commitment to the community
  • learn discipline, responsibility, teamwork, and appreciation for the needs of others at school and in the wider community.
  • further identify your own career interests
  • make valuable contributions to your community
  • receive partial course credit for your efforts (because service learning is tied to your course objectives).

Many colleges view community service as a valuable experience that improves your qualifications for admission. Service learning hours are also required for eligibility for many scholarships and awards.

Service Learning must be done in conjunction with a credit-bearing course and supported by the course instructor.
