Service Learning Seminars
Many community colleges engage students in community service. But, does your campus use it as a vehicle for learning? Recent studies show that a Service Learning component improves student academic achievement and campus retention.
Upcoming Service Learning Opportunities
Preregistration required for all seminars.
SkillsUSA has a national college/postsecondary program of work that includes a Service Learning component. This training will provide information on the new model, how to establish a chapter and how to integrate the model and SkillsUSA into your classrooms using these components: academic coursework, service to the community, and a critical reflection component that lends itself to civic engagement/responsibility. Discover through PowerPoint presentation, handouts and group discussion, how Service Learning can be a teaching methodology, which allows faculty to integrate classroom instruction with student community service.
Discover how Service Learning projects involve students in the following:
- Environments which supplement their education
- Opportunities to build workplace skills
- Communication and networking
- Awareness of community needs
- Also learn how students can earn recognition and awards for their service.
SkillsUSA Service Learning Training is a half-day session and will include breaks. Cost: $50.
