Getting Started with Service-Learning:

  1. Once you know you have a Service-Learning assignment, register on SFCC GetConnected and research local agencies that meet your instructor's class goals.

  2. Using the information provided by the agency, contact them, inquire about their intake process for volunteers/service-learning students, and set up a time to meet with them in-person for a pre-service interview (make sure to tell them what your professor expects of your participation in the service).

  3. Keep track of your hours in GetConnected! Even if your professor requires a paper time log, GetConnected allows us to seek agency verification of your hours.

  4. If you have difficulty getting a call or email back from your chosen Community Partner, or if you want to choose a local non-profit organization that is not listed here, let your instructor know and contact the Career and Community Engagement Center immediately.

  5. Not all of the service learning/community engagement opportunities listed on the Get Connected site are sanctioned by SFCC. Please contact the Career & Community Engagement Center to verify an agency's status if you are volunteering on your own and not through a class or club.
