Get involved at sjcc!
Explore many opportunities at SJCC. Find something that feeds your soul, passion, faith, or culture, or something that feeds your career, or helps you discover a subject you would like to learn more about.
Getting involved should always come after self, family, school, work, etc.
Use your calendar wisely and be sure to make time for everything in your life, including unstructured time, then consider getting involved in a way that works for you. It’s OK to ask if events are kid-friendly and make it a family affair. You get out of it what you put into it.
