About EdCC's Center for Service-Learning

The Center for Service-Learning at Edmonds Community College provides support for service-learning courses and events at the college and in the community.

Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. Service-Learning combines service objectives with learning objectives with the intent that the activity changes both the recipient and the provider of the service. This is accomplished by combining service tasks with structured opportunities that link the task to self-reflection, self-discovery, and the acquisition and comprehension of values, skills, and knowledge content. Civic engagement involves participation and contribution to civic and public life through voting, staying politically informed, and engaging in community service.

Get involved in your community, and do something fun and exciting! Our sponsored projects are a great way for students to gain service learning hours, make a difference in the community, meet new people, network with local community partners, build your resume, and have fun. We offer 20-25 different projects each quarter (there are limited projects during summer quarter) and more could be added, so check back often.

For our list of Sponsored Service Projects, please click on the "Sponsored Projects" tab. The majority of our sponsored projects include transportation, snacks, and a reflection activity.
