Center for Citizenship and Community

Our most successful and long-lasting partnerships are approached from the perspective of reciprocal benefits, in which the student's educational experiences equals or even exceeds the service performed.

Partnerships have included:

  • A CARING PLACE
    • A daycare center for adults with physical and cognitive challenges. Students brighten the days of site participants, which at the same time learning valuable lessons in listening, caregiving, and therapy.
  • KALEIDOSCOPE YOUTH CENTER
    • Students have acted as mentors, tutors, and dance instructors for afterschool programs at this United Way agency, earning valuable life experience as well as enriching the lives of grade-school children.
  • NUR-ALLAH ISLAMIC CENTER
    • Students help with the weekend school and research around the center, and are also exposed to an often-vilified American minority. Students in the past have emerged from onsite service-learning with broader horizons, and lessons on cross-cultural communication.
