Service Learning

Academics + Service + Civic Engagement

Service-Learning is a unique opportunity that combines community service with techniques or concepts you learn in the classroom. Through this program, you’re able to earn course credit while participating in meaningful, real-world service projects that address needs in our community. Service-Learning also brings the community together, inspires positive change for the future, and allows you to enjoy the rewards of fulfilling your civic responsibility

As a BCC student, you’ll take part in 15 hours of hands-on service at local nonprofit organizations related to your coursework. In addition to receiving a service stipend of $11.13 per service hour, you’ll have the chance to:

  • Experience hands-on learning—in a real-world setting.
  • Solve real problems in your community.
  • Work with people from diverse backgrounds.
  • Explore career possibilities.
  • Have fun, discover your strengths, and gain new skills.
  • Earn recognition, awards, or scholarships to further your education.

A successful Service-Learning experience can lead to an excellent reference, internship, or even a job. Get involved today and be part of the change!
