Do you want to make a positive difference? Do you want to take what you’re learning in the classroom and put it to real use in the community? Do you want to make an impact and do something worthwhile? If, so you may be interested in taking a service-learning course at Stevenson.
Service-learning at Stevenson allows students to apply the knowledge and skills that they have learned in the classroom to meet genuine needs in the community, while being mentored and supported by faculty and staff members.
For example, Film and Moving Image students use their technical filmmaking skills to create informational or promotional videos for local nonprofit community partners. Meanwhile, Public History students conduct much needed archival work and Education students work with local youth. Law Clinic students assist with pro bono legal services while Animal Psychology students volunteer at the local SPCA.
Stevenson students are actively engaged in service-learning and their participation in these authentic, hands-on experiences help them become skilled in relating theory with practice, ultimately, making them competent and competitive in their respective fields while enhancing their employment opportunities.
