Become a volunteer in your community, enhance your soft skills, and explore opportunities!
Los Angeles Valley College's Service Learning Program links students as volunteers with volunteer opportunities (PDF). Through volunteer service, students gain valuable practical experience that can be related to any class.
Many LAVC instructors incorporate Service Learning into their courses enhancing opportunities for learning, while allowing students to gain hands-on work experience in the community. Students participating in Service Learning must complete a minimum of 20 hours of service over the semester. Students must also maintain a "reflection journal," challenging them to think, write, and talk critically about (and thereby learn from) their experiences.
