Service Learning

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Service Learning Changes Lives

Service Learning combines academic instruction with active community service, utilizing critical, reflective thinking to examine the world around you and your civic responsibilities. It is not​ volunteering. It is a mutually beneficial partnership, allowing students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to the real world while:​​

  • Developing new skills​
  • Improving critical thinking skills​
  • Exploring career possibilities
  • Making a difference by meeting community needs
  • Increasing citizen support​

​Our Service Learning program offers students an opportunity to serve through partnerships with a wide variety of charitable and social agencies. So, come with an open mind and heart and join our commitment to serving the community and learning through service.​
