Partner Resources

Community Partner Tookit
In both a downloadable and online version, the Community Partner Toolkit provides partners with information used in the in-person orientation and on the Service Learning Partnership.

Community Partner Wishlist (doc)
Partner Wishlists are collected by the Service Learning Program about 2-3 months before the fall and spring semesters begin. Wishlists are posted on the Community Partner Directory for Faculty members to view and contact partners. The Service Learning Program also actively seeks to fullfill the listed needs by outreach to Faculty/Courses that have a potentially natural fit with that specific need. Even with this active search to address the collected needs, the lists are still "wish" lists in the fact that all needs may not be met.

Community Partner Directory
Established LCCC Service Learning Community Partners are listed in this Directory and have their own organizational webpage. These pages are designed to showcase the overall information of a partner, list their official website link, a snap-shot of ongoing volunteer needs, and contact information. Faculty members and students can view this information and contact partners directly to get engaged.

Faculty Profiles
Created at the request of our current partners, these Faculty Profiles serve multiple purposes, but for our Community Partners they provide information that can assist in the connection of needs. Profiles list all of our current Service Learning Faculty members, the courses they teach, past project examples, and contact information. Partners can now directly contact current Faculty members to get involved in their student projects!
