Brown Bag focuses on service learning

Students interested in learning about OCCC’s Service Awards Programs can attend a Brown Bag workshop hosted by Student Life at 12:30 p.m. until 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 27 in room CU2. Jill Robertson, student life program assistant, said all students are welcome to come and learn more about what OCCC has to offer.

“At OCCC, we have two programs offered to students for service learning. We have the Civic Honors Award, which is 50 hours of community service and then we have the Campus Impact Award, which is 30 hours of volunteering your time on campus,” Robertson said.

In addition to the volunteer hours, both the Civic Honors Award and the Campus Impact Award have learning components. Students will need to put together a portfolio with a current resume, a personal vision statement, personal and professional goals, an academic transcript, a student activities and recognition transcript, a reflective project, and their documented hours of service upon completion of either program. They will also be required to attend mentor sessions, she said.

During the Brown Bag, Student Life will present more information about the programs, inform students how to get started, requirements for the programs, and what the programs entail.
