Service learning brings the community into the learning and teaching process as it combines classroom instruction with community service. Students apply classroom theories to practical problems, addressing real community needs and increasing the likelihood of personal and civic growth.
Students spend at least 20 hours during the semester volunteering at a site of their choice. English for New Americans, Child and Family Services, the Hillsborough County Nursing Home, and Headstart, are just a few of the more than 50 sites currently partnered with the Meelia Center. Students may tutor kids, raise funds, or advocate for change.
If you'd like to become a community partner please contact the Meelia Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603-641-7108.
