Learning in the community

In addition to coursework – or completely outside of the classroom – your student can get involved with a local community organization and contributing to their efforts.

Community Action Projects (CAP)

CAPs offer short- and long-term options to connect in the community. Become a tutor in a high school or volunteer at a senior’s home and make a difference
in your own life and the lives of others.
