Service Learning

What Is Service Learning?

Service Learning affords students the opportunity to utilize their academic knowledge and technical skills while doing community service work. Over 200 agencies in the Gadsden-Etowah, Cherokee and Calhoun county areas provide basic health care, social services, protection, and counseling to people in crisis situations or to those with specific needs. You can be one of the many volunteers who assist these agencies in doing a better job.

Students do more than just volunteer in Service Learning. Besides receiving academic credit for their service work, they begin to make connections between what they are learning in the classroom with what they are experiencing in real life.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
-- Margaret Mead
