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

Our High Impact Practice specialist works with students in JCCC’s Service Learning credit program, as well as faculty, staff, and community partners, to provide learning opportunities that meet the needs of the college and the community.

These learning opportunities may include:

  • Service Learning
  • Electoral engagement
  • Community-engaged research
  • Philanthropy
  • Activism
  • Community organizing

We support faculty in implementing these strategies and work 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

Sign up for a Service Learning course at JCCC and volunteering will become part of your class experience. Each professor will have assignments related to a Service Learning project, allowing you to find your interest and make it count. It is up to you to complete these assignments and learn all you can from them.

By volunteering at one of these agencies, you can bolster your resume and have experiences you can brag about in future job interviews. Reach out to Melissa Nolan for assistance in filling out the applications and find out how JCCC can help you expand your volunteer service.

Service Learning sites

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