Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Community Engagement , like Service Learning, is a form of Civic Engagement. Community Engagement and Service Learning differ in the fact that Service Learning is ALWAYS connected to an academic course; Community Engagement (aka. Community Service/Volunteerism) is not.  

LCCC encourages student engagement in both Service Learning and Community Engagement and have a couple methods of assisting in connecting students to general volunteering opportunities.

How to identify volunteer opportunities:

Skills-Based Volunteering

Community Engagement can and should be mutually beneficial for both the volunteer and the organization/community. When a mutually beneficial connection exists, usually it will yield a greater impact. We encourage students to serve in volunteer roles that are connected:  

  • To your social interests (poverty, hunger, domestic violence, animal rescue, etc.)
  • To your current skills (photography, web design, carpentry, mentoring, first aid, etc.)
  • To your career path/major (Nursing, Law, Computer Maintenance, Social Work, Arts, etc.)   

 The Service Learning Office can also assist you in making these more meaningful connections.
