Welcome to the The Center of Service Learning & Civic Engagement and the Service Learning Program at Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC). Service-learning is a teaching and learning tool that combines course content with organized community service experiences at local nonprofit organizations (agencies).
Learning through service learning is based on a three-way partnership involving you – the service learning agency/supervisor, the student, and an EMCC Faculty member who will guide the student through this real life experience. Our mission is to also prepare our students to become active citizens and we would like to ask for your assistance in helping to achieve this.
What are the Benefits of Service Learning & Civic Engagement to the Employer/Agency?
- Increase positive exposure in the community.
- Facilitate the development of the students’ lifelong commitment to service.
- Provide increased direct aid, human interaction, and personal empowerment to people in need.
- Develop short and long term solutions to pressing community needs.
