Grinnell’s Service Learning and Civic Engagement Program 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 with classes with a community applied aspect, or other ways to make a difference in the Grinnell area, this program can help.
