For Faculty

“This experience was amazing, I felt really impressed with the work we accomplished. I marveled at the different types of people involved, the young and the old, the jocks and the nerds, the preps and the outcasts”. Palomar College student

If you are interested in discussing partnerships with community agencies for your service learning course, we can suggest some agencies that could meet the goals and objectives of your course. Would you like to have a service learning orientation for your class? Please let us know!

We always like to hear about students’ service learning experiences. With student permission, please share any memorable quotes or portions of a student’s reflection paper with us! Email
