The database is a resource for students developing service-learning opportunities and faculty teaching service-learning courses. The agencies listed are not the only agencies that are appropriate for service-learning but they already have developed a relationship with FGCU, are pre-approved for service-learning, have an understanding of what service-learning means, and what activities students can do to fulfill their service-learning hours.
All agencies listed in our database meet our risk management guidelines and are nonprofit, not-for-profit, or a governmental organization
Given the directive from Florida Board of Governors to move all instruction online from March 15 – March 29 (https://www.fgcu.edu/coronaupdate/, we are encouraging students to explore virtual S-L opportunities found here: https://fgcu.campuslabs.com/engage/organization/slo (look for VIRTUAL in the header).
For students remaining local and comfortable doing so, many in-person opportunities are also listed. Be sure to follow instructions listed under each opportunity to RSVP and to confirm with each community partner that the opportunity is still happening.
The Service-Learning Staff will be working remotely for this period of time. Please direct any questions or concerns to email@example.com. Our team will be available during regular business hours to meet individually as needed by appointment via Zoom.
