What does a Community Partner do?
Service-Learning is an opportunity for students at UW-Eau Claire to give back to the local community, or their home community. It provides a way to learn skills, investigate careers, and build a personal network. Service-Learning makes education a collaborative effort; students benefit society by exercising the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Each UW-Eau Claire student is required to complete 30 hours of Service-Learning prior to graduating.
Community Action Fair
Each semester, the Center for Service-Learning, along with University Centers, hosts the Community Action Fair. This is an opportunity for you to meet with students and provide them more information about the kinds of projects available through your organization. Check back for more information on registering for the Spring Community Action Fair.
As a Site Supervisor you can post projects for UW-Eau Claire students to complete. Your projects will go into our database and allow students the opportunity to find your it. Your project should meet the criteria laid out in the Guidebook.
