Service Learning at Palomar College


We always welcome new Service Learning participants. We have an extensive list of great nonprofit organizations in our community eagerly awaiting to hear from  Palomar College Students willing to volunteer.

Students – Please go to the Info for Students page. Check out the Community Partners List and use the 11 easy steps to register!
Professors – We invite you to get your students involved with Service Learning this Semester! Service Learning can be used to replace an assignment, or as extra credit. Some Service Learning projects are for special events and are just a one-day commitment. Professors can also participate, volunteering themselves (and earn PD credit for doing so!) Click on Info for Faculty for more information.

Thank you to all students, faculty, and especially our Community Partners for attending our Spring 2018 Semester Service Learning Fair. We had a large turnout and the event was a great success!

Great Job Psychology Students in Professor Genevieve Griffin’s class who volunteered at the 2017 Walk Rock and Roll event raising awareness and funds for San Diego Autism Society!

On Saturday, October 28,  Palomar College Faculty and Staff participated in National Make a Difference Day helping to make our community a better place. Palomar employees served on projects at three local non-profit organizations – TERI Inc., Charity Wings Art & Craft Center, and Escondido Community Child Development Center. Faculty and Staff enjoyed connecting and collaborating with each other and giving back to the community. We hope to make this an annual event!
