About Service Learning


Service Learning is an academically based program at NWACC that allows students to engage, network, and work with the community to complete student-driven and developed service projects.

Through the development of individual and/or group projects, students are able to apply what they learn in the classroom with real life experiences to meet a course's learning objectives.

Service Learning reaffirms the college's connection to the NWA community, and to our larger society, by encouraging students to engage in service efforts while furthering their education through applied learning. 

All students who complete Service Learning projects will be recognized as Service Learning scholars on their transcripts. Those who participate in Service Learning projects tend to have a competitive edge when applying for scholarships, for entrance into four-year colleges and universities, and in the job market.
