Service learning is a form of experiential education that partners academic instruction with community service. Students learn through participation in thoughtfully organized service activities that are course relevant and meet actual community needs. Each semester approximately 60 courses at MiraCosta College offer a service component either as an option or a requirement. Students are placed in non-profit organizations and public schools where they provide a variety of support services. These placements allow students to apply course theory in real world settings while making valuable community contributions.
Congratulations to MiraCosta College for being named to the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions that reflect the values of exemplary community service and achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities. The Honor Roll is recognition from the highest levels of the federal government for commitment to service and civic engagement.
Pick a project or two, join alone or with a club or group! We realize that not everyone can serve on National Make a Difference Day, October 24, so we've made it a week of service just for us. We need volunteers to Make a Difference. The only thing missing in VOL_NTEERS IS U!
