Service learning is a teaching methodology that engages students in hands-on academic projects in the community to meet learning objectives and strengthen communities. Service-learning creates a bridge between WSC and area school districts and universities near Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Our role as each school's community partner it to work with the student individually to construct a project that is mutually beneficial to WSC, the student, and the learning institution. These projects provide real-life experiences to the students.
Service learning and leadership opportunities are available to students from 742 school district, higher education students from CSB, SJU, SCSU, and SCTCC, and adults 55-plus looking to share their skills through leadership opportunities.
WSC strives to offer creative and innovative opportunities for participants to be engaged and involved. Special projects, class instruction and internships are available for discussion. Opportunities are available in a variety of options depending on the individual’s capacity to be involved. Opportunities can be one-time, seasonal (ex: 4 to 6 weeks), or ongoing.
