Overview for the Student
In the Service Learning Program, San Jose City College students go into the community as students, not volunteers. They go out to listen and explore, question and wonder, observe, feel and experience. That is why what they do is not adequately described as community service. In order for students to have sufficient time for these experiences, they are placed in agencies or programs that do not rely on them for survival. And we have them work in an unstructured capacity because they are there primarily to learn.
The student is required to visit the Job Placement Center for pertinent information concerning the sign-ups for the service learning experience. A packet containing service learning forms is available. Faculty/staff also provide students with end-of- service learning evaluation forms.
