Grinnell’s Service and Social Innovation programming is an outgrowth of the College’s long history of social responsibility, reflecting our belief that quality civic engagement addresses the common good while providing transformational experiential learning.

This program encourages you to participate more actively in your education while making a difference in the community. You’ll enhance your overall sense of wellbeing and civic purpose, deepen your understanding of classroom learning, and develop transferrable professional skills. You’ll also come to appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of real-world problem solving, and understand the civic and professional value of a liberal arts education.

Whether you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, a community service work-study position, help identifying community-based learning courses, or other ways to make a difference in our global community, the Center for Careers, Life, and Service can help.
