Our mission is to empower students to partner with and strengthen diverse communities through service learning, volunteering and civic engagement.

The High Impact Practice specialist works with JCCC students, faculty and staff, as well as community partners to provide learning opportunities that meet the needs of the college and the community.

These learning opportunities include:

  • Service Learning
  • Electoral Engagement
  • Community-engaged Research
  • Philanthropy
  • Activism
  • Community organizing

We support faculty in implementing these strategies and works with participating students to empower them to become ethical leaders, engaged citizens and public servants for more diverse and just communities. 


Service Learning in course work

Volunteer and enjoy. Find your interest and make it count. By volunteering at one of these agencies, you can bolster your resume and have experiences you can brag about in job interviews.

Reach out to Melissa for assistance in filling out the applications and find out how JCCC can help you expand your volunteer service.

Sign up for a service learning course and volunteering will become part of your class experience. Each professor will have assignments related to a service-learning project. It is up to you to complete these assignments and learn all you can from them. 


Service Learning sites

There are a variety of agencies that will welcome you as a service-learning volunteer.
