The Sarbanes Center helps students gain real-world experience and explore careers by connecting with businesses, government agencies, schools and nonprofit organizations. We offer hands-on learning opportunities related to interests and majors.
Having experience can be an advantage in pursuing educational and employment goals. Experience helps you become career-ready, acquire skills, gain knowledge and network in the community. If you’re unsure of your academic or career path, or even if you know exactly what you want to do, start exploring today!
The Sarbanes Center welcomes the opportunity to build sustainable partnerships with businesses, government agencies, schools and nonprofit organizations to engage AACC students in meaningful experiences in the community. AACC students have a wealth of talent, skills and enthusiasm and can make valuable contributions to your organization. Contact us to learn more about how we can work together.
The Sarbanes Center Partner of the Year project brings together all of the resources of the center in a year-long collaboration to make a greater impact in the community. A community partner is selected through an application process, and community-based activities are designed to engage students in outstanding and relevant real-world learning experiences while also meeting the needs of the community partner.
