Civic Engagement

At Cape Cod Community College, students in every discipline have the opportunity to enhance their college experience by expanding classroom learning into the real world. By taking what they learn and completing related service and volunteer projects, students fill needs in the community while strengthening their own knowledge, confidence, and self-esteem. Students who participate in Service Learning can volunteer, teach, and care for others while being exposed to societal issues that they may never have known about before.

Our goal is to create caring, lifelong volunteers who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and take a stand when they see a problem. If you are a student interested in serving in your community, please explore our volunteer opportunities below and contact us to get started!
