In the fall semester of 2002, the Triton College Scholars Program adopted a service-learning initiative, whereby all freshmen scholars students will complete 24 hours per semester of volunteer activities in their communities.
Service-learning partners include agencies in the areas of social service, culture and history, library service, animal care, health service, and literacy service. The program invites any interested not-for-profit agencies within the service district of Triton College to contact the program for information about becoming a service-learning partner.
Purpose and Goals of Service Learning
The service-learning mission is threefold. Service learning provides volunteer opportunities to Triton College Scholars Students who will share their talents, skills, interest and expertise. In addition, service learners will assist nonprofit and health care agencies in recruitment of students for their special activities and/or daily tasks. Lastly, Scholars Program service learners (SSL) will document and report the value and impact of service learning student work to interested parties.
