Tips on Getting Involved

Involvement with Intention!

Explore many opportunities at SJCC. Find something that feeds your soul, passion, faith, or culture.  Try something that feeds your career, or helps you discover a subject you would like to learn more about.

Know your Priorities!

Getting involved should always come after self, family, school, work, etc.

Stay in Balance!

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.

Have fun!
