Get Experience. Give Back. Feel Good.

As a service-learning student, you can get experience by applying what you are learning in your courses while giving back to the community. It feels good to give back, plus you remember what you have learned and that experience looks good when you transfer or apply for a job.

What is Service-Learning at AACC?
Service-learning combines academic studies with community volunteer service, enhancing student learning through a hands-on service experience that meets a community need. Through reflection assignments, students demonstrate their understanding of course objectives. 

What is Engaged Learning at AACC?
Engaged Learning is the active, hands-on application of classroom theories and concepts in real world situations. Also referred to as experiential learning or applied learning, engaged learning provides opportunities for students to interact with the community in mutually beneficial activities that expand the student's awareness of issues and understanding of course content.
