Finding a Community Agency

When selecting a community agency for your service-learning course, be sure to connect with staff from the agency to discuss their volunteers’ expectations, the students’ expectations, and your learning outcomes. By giving the agency an overview of what your students are studying and how it directly relates to community involvement, the community agency can assist with the learning outcomes. Talking about expectations will allow for open communication. Many service-learning classes invite community partners to class for an orientation  and overview about the agency during the first few weeks of the semester. To find a community agency search the online Volunteer Directory.

If you need additional assistance, contact Dr. Katie Solic, Service-Learning Faculty Associate.
