Service Learning

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has" ~ Margaret Mead

Service Learning Directions for Students

“Community service is such a great thing, and I think it should be included in more college classes. Students hear about what’s going on around the world, but they should also experience it.  It gives you a different feeling compared to learning in the classroom”.  – Palomar College student
**Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: To Students – We understand you are making transitions to an online classroom, might have increased family responsibilities and possibly experiencing some stress. We are here to support you as you are adjusting to an online learning environment. If you need help, remember to reach out to your professor about your service learning assignment. Feel free to reach out to us if you have questions at servicelearning@palomar.edu. You can also connect with us through phone and Zoom. We are here for you. Stay healthy.**

NOTE: If you are doing Service Learning for more than one class you must complete separate hours and assignments for each class. Please fill out two separate time sheets, two online registration forms, and two online completion forms. Using the same service hours for 2 classes is a “duplication of assignments” which is a violation of academic integrity. Please see the Palomar College Student Code of Conduct paragraph A.
