Higher Hopes Community-Service Learning Project for College Students
Through the Community Service-Learning Project (CSLP), typically, students earn an additional pass/fail credit linked to a regular three- or four-credit course in exchange for completing an additional course assignment, 40 hours of relevant service work in the community, and related reflection activities. The service should be in alignment with Higher Hopes mission and be related to the learning objectives of the course.
If a student is interested in the program, he/she should review our available programs, work with his/her professor to work out the agreement. Interested students are welcomed to contact Higher Hopes to discuss possible site placements. Typically, after the 40 hours are completed, the student receives one Pass/Fail credit added on to his/her regular course unless there is a practicum course agreement.
Completion of the program is also based upon:
