Community Partner Resource Guide : This is a very helpful guide to any potential and current Service-Learning Community Partners! This guide includes helpful academic calendar dates that will help community partners plan events around student academic obligations and holidays, notable Service-Learning Center events and more!

Service-Learning Agreement : Once a non-profit organization agrees to partner with the CPCC Service-Learning Center, this form is required to be completed and submitted by the organization. Once this Service-Learning agreement is received, the respective organization's information will be listed on the CPCC Service-Learning Center's List of Community Partners and Agencies. This is how many service-learning students decide on their service-learning placement.

Service-Learning Orientations for Community Partners: Orientations at a community partner's location sets the tone for the student's service-learning experience. Explaining the purpose of your organization and how students can make a difference will help the students feel more engaged, which will in turn motivate them. Please view the following guidelines for some topics to cover with service-learning students when they are completing a service-learning experience with your organization.

On-Going Service-Learning Experience Guideline:
This is beneficial for students who plan to complete service with your organization more than one time.

One Time Service-Learning Experience Guideline: This is beneficial for students who plan to complete a one-day service project with your organization and for groups of CPCC students who attend one day service-learning projects
