A spirit of community involvement

The Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement at Eastern Florida State College strives to make service an integral part of students’ education so they’re prepared to be lifelong learners, responsible community members and productive citizens.

Eastern Florida State College developed the Center for Service-Learning to systematically involve and support students in educational and important public service experiences. Since the Center’s inception in 1988, more than 71,840 students have collectively served more than 2.35 million hours. Today the Center is recognized and respected as one of the best service-learning programs in the United States.

What is Service-Learning?
Service-Learning is the blending of both service and learning goals and experiences that are enriched by each other and greater together than separate. It’s a teaching method and educational experience that helps students learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully organized service experiences that provide structured time for reflections, while fostering academic learning, a sense of caring and civic responsibility.
