Community Involvement

Community Involvement is a course that enables students to serve their community, pursue their educational experience beyond campus and further their academic goals on a voluntary basis.

There are opportunities to work with the elderly, the disabled, animals, youth of all ages, environmental groups, in non-profit agencies, educational institutions, health care facilities and social service agencies. Hours are flexible and arranged between the student and the organization.

A maximum of 3 units is allowed each semester, with a total of 6 units while attending SRJC. The units apply to the AA/AS from any community college in California and towards a BA/BS from any California State University.

Hours per semester and units are calculated as follows:
