Service and Volunteer Opportunities

  • Service-learning integrates academic and service activities with community partners. It encourages civic engagement. It builds meaningful connections with community and leadership development.

    Learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully organized service that:

    • is integrated into and enhances academic and learning activities.
    • is conducted in and meets the needs of the community.
    • is coordinated with an institution of higher education and community partner.
    • includes structured time for student reflection.
    • helps foster civic responsibility. 

    Carroll Community College partners with many non-profit, education and government organizations to offer a variety of service opportunities for students throughout the year. Students can get involved by taking a course that offers a service-learning component or by participating in one of the many co-curricular programs sponsored by the Student Life Office.

    There are many benefits to volunteering! Serving can:

    • Enrich learning by expanding classroom course material into real life community experiences
    • Enhance interpersonal, communication and human relations skills
    • Broaden perspectives and understanding of varied, diverse cultures and lifestyles
    • Promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills 
    • Increase a sense of self-worth through meaningful contribution to the community
    • Foster a sense of social and civic responsibility
    • Provide opportunities to explore careers

    Carroll Community College encourages all of its students, faculty and staff to get involved in helping their community. To see a complete listing of our community partners, view the Directory of Community Partners 2020-2021
