Welcome Back

The Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement is committed to providing students with a variety of in-person and virtual volunteer service opportunities that extend beyond the classroom and foster civic responsibility.

To that end, the CSLCE is open for walk-in service and offers an on-campus appointment option to minimize your wait.

Many questions can be answered by a quick phone call, and our appointment scheduling options still include virtual appointments via Microsoft Teams.

 

Get Involved in Service-Learning

Service-Learning at Eastern Florida State College is a three-way partnership among students, faculty, and community partners that enables students to earn course credit while gaining hands-on volunteer experience. The Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement (CSLCE) coordinates this invaluable program which has generated more than 3 million hours of community service since it started more than 30 years ago. Get started by exploring the options and links below.

Students: Learn by Volunteering in the Community

Students who participate in Service-Learning can use skills learned in the classroom to impact their local communities. Plus real-world experience and service hours on academic transcripts will give students an added advantage when they enter the workforce. Visit our Student Info page for complete details on how to sign up.

Students who document at least 75 hours of service and have at least a 2.5 GPA are also eligible to apply for an annual Service-Learning scholarship.

Faculty: Add a Service Component to Your Classroom

Faculty members who incorporate Service-Learning into their classes increase learning opportunities for students, improve community relations, and experience improved student retention. EFSC faculty in 450 course sections use Service-Learning to enrich their students' learning experience.

Adding Service-Learning to your classes is easy: review the step-by-step instructions.

Community Partners: Engage Student Volunteers

Get involved by reviewing our page for Community Partners. We currently share opportunities with our student volunteers at about 350 volunteer placement sites throughout Brevard County, and we'd love to add you to that list.

Need volunteers for special projects or events? Contact the CSLCE with the details. We'll spread the word to our student volunteers.
