EMPACTS

Educationally Managed Projects Advancing Curriculum, Technology/Teamwork, and Service

The EMPACTS Learning Model transforms learners into innovative, productive leaders, who make meaningful contributions to the community, while deepening their learning of course content.

This process promotes meaningful learning experiences, as teams of students use technology to solve community, content-based problems. Adult Learners gain an enhanced learning of the curriculum, while increasing self-esteem, confidence and motivation, and awareness of their role in serving their community. EMPACTS students develop personal and professional skills that increase their potential to achieve success in the workplace.

EMPACTS faculty partner with learners and the community as they implement service learning projects with a curricular focus.    

EAST students, who are looking for an EAST experience beyond high school, should consider the EAST/EMPACTS program at NWACC. We have had eight years of successful student directed projects and have opportunities for scholarships, service as EMPACTS Tech Corp students and growth as individuals preparing for a four-year college or the work force.
