Enjoy serving your community and get out of the classroom.

Earn credit outside the classroom. With service-learning courses, you'll make learning an adventure, experience the real world, serve your community, help others, have fun and still get credit. More cool benefits:

  • Learn by doing
  • Serve your community
  • Experience citizenship
  • Improve self-confidence
  • Connect with community issues
  • Improve personal skills
  • Expand network opportunities
  • Build your resume. (Employers like to see you are more than a GPA.)

How it works

Service-learning classes are classes without borders. You enroll in them the same as with other MCC classes.

Some examples of service learning:

Biology: work with a local wildlife preserve to help clean up a waterway and study first hand how plants, animals and ecosystems are affected by human activity.

Theater: work behind the scenes at a city theater and work with staff on costumes, lighting, sound design and acting.

Accounting: help area residents prepare and file taxes during tax season.

Two ways to get service learning:

  1. Do it in class: integrated class
    For this course, the service you do is like a homework assignment: You and your classmates do at least 15 hours of service as part of your class. Your instructor assigns a journal, paper or other assignment to see what you've learned.
  2. Do it on your own: component class
    This stand-alone, one-, two-, or three-hour class adds service experience to a course you are taking. Or extends the experience of one you've finished. For every hour you take, you put in 40 hours of community service. You'll wrap up your experience with a journal, paper or other assignment. You work on your own and at your own pace.
