SCC's newly formed Office of Service-learning & Leadership was created to help you take your learning to the next level by facilitating opportunities to connect classroom instruction to real-world experience through two main methods: (1) service-learning; and, (2) leadership lessons. In each of these venues, you will work to develop as a more engaged and aware citizen by addressing needs within our local and global communities.
We communicate with you through our office on-campus, your classroom faculty, newsletters, flyers, emails and our college website.
Service-learning combines academic instruction with meaningful volunteerism in the larger community. It is intentional, community-identified, reflective and celebratory. Stop by our office in SC-100, or ask your instructor for more information!
- Fall 2014 list of classes offering Service-learning opportunities can be viewed here.
- Artie's Community for Service (ACeS) meets on alternating Tuesdays beginning in September. Learn how you can join us and make a difference.
SCC LEADERSHIP ACADEMIC CERTIFICATE
Coming soon! Watch for a new leadership academic certificate for students to complement your degree work. You will be able to take actual classes on leadership and earn credit for your leadership roles on-campus and within the community. This will be the only way at SCC that you can have leadership appear on your college transcripts.
Our partnerships with the community are an indispensable component to your success. As a student you have several opportunities to participate in important community service projects, such as Make A Difference Day, Volunteer Fair, and College to the Community. Community service is different than service-learning—feel free to stop by our office to learn how.
Join students from throughout the Maricopa Community Colleges on a six-day adventure in self-discovery. This program is designed to help you develop your leadership abilities through interactive and practical experience. Applications are available on-line from January through April for this Summer institute.
