Project Homeless Connect Volunteers

"Service Learning is crucial for someone going into a field where they will ultimately work with someone or something that can affect the environment, people, or things. It gives those studying a certain subject to get first-hand experience, and find out if this is something they truly want to do."

"This was a much more enjoyable experience than I thought it would be at first. When I first learned that I would need to volunteer in some way, in all honesty I didn’t really want to. But after doing it, it was one of the best experiences I’ve gone through related to academics that I can think of."

"[M]y experience with [service learning] has been life-changing and eye-opening. It has given me a new perspective on homelessness and the struggles that individuals in my own community face every day. I have gained a newfound respect for the volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts to helping those in need. I am committed to continuing to work towards a more inclusive and supportive community, and I encourage others to do the same."

"As an introvert, I find I can get stuck in thinking or imagining and have found the best way to free my thoughts and move forward is to take action, get feedback, reflect, and repeat.  I think that is what service learning is offering.  It's a way to take concepts and put them into practice."

"I am beyond proud to attend a college that values helping out the community as much as ACC does."
