About Service Learning Courses:
Service-Learning courses follow a non-traditional model of teaching and learning that allows students to engage in meaningful service opportunities in the community that purposefully overlap with and enhance the academic learning that occurs in the classroom. Each service-learning course allows you to sharpen your leadership, critical thinking and problem-solving skills while simultaneously taking action to meet real community-defined needs.
Service-Learning courses at Shoreline Community College utilize the component in two ways:
a. As a requirement- Students registered in courses where service-learning is required must complete fifteen (15) hours of service over the course of one (1) academic quarter.
Service time is allotted as part of the coursework load, not supplementary.
b. Optional- If an instructor offers a service-learning option, students who elect to participate in service-learning must complete fifteen (15) hours of service over the course of (1) academic quarter.
Service time is an experiential substitute for part of the coursework load to equalize with students who do not elect to participate in service-learning.
Various service-learning positions are pre-arranged and available for selection online during the first week of the quarter. Each site placement available has been specifically arranged so that your service participation is closely related to the content of the course you are taking.
Upon registering and beginning a service-learning course, please keep in mind there are a limited number of positions per site. Sign up early to avoid missing out on the opportunity you prefer!
