Community Service Learning - no longer included

  • http://www.deanza.edu/communityengagement/csl.html - Community Service Learning Courses
    ICCE's Community Service Learning (CSL) Program focuses on experiential learning by arranging for students to interact with diverse and often underserved people in a variety of workplace environments, reflect on their community involvement, and connect and integrate their experiences in the community with their classroom learning and their own lives. CSL can be required or can be attached as additional credit in G.E. courses from all disciplines at De Anza College.


Computers and the internet enable anyone to provide community service and gain valuable learning experience. Here are some online volunteer opportunities that students have enjoyed.

Working on a community service learning project is optional. To show our appreciation, extra credit points are available for your volunteers time and your feedback about your experience. In order to receive credit you must have prior approval from the instructor, provide contact information for the organization, log your work hours and activities, and submit a summary of the relevance of the community service to the course.
