Community Partners

What is Service-Learning?

Service-Learning connects meaningful community service with academic learning, personal growth, and civic responsibility. Enhancing student experiences beyond the classroom provides opportunities to use skills and knowledge in real life situations. A Service Project can take place in the community, nationally, or globally.

By providing service opportunities in your agencies, civic organization, or citizen advocacy groups, you are helping build strong community connections. Work with us to develop the social character of the next generation.
