Volunteer Opportunities


The Center for Service-Learning develops relationships between Shoreline Community College and nonprofit organizations in the community that rely on volunteers to run their programs. By connecting students with these organizations, we're creating a reciprocal relationship: organizations receive essential support for their services and students gain professional experience and hands-on education.


Current Service Opportunities - updated every quarter for Service Learning Students and the community.
