Transcript of 4 Steps to Service Learning_2013/2014

To get started, you will need to go to the HCC website and find all of the service learning materials you will need.
Here's the HCC homepage
Click on the
Academics
tab and then select Service Learning from the drop down menu.
This will bring up a list of every document
that you need.
Next,
click on
Student Resources.
Read through each section and make a special note of what you CAN and CANNOT do for service learning.
Please remember that the majority of your service time can
NOT
include:
office work (filing, data entry, etc.)
fundraising (don't ask others for cash!)
anything related to religion

Complete a Service Learning Waiver
1
If you are under 18, you need a parent or guardian to sign it too.
Turn the waiver into your instructor or the
Center for Service Learning in MH 120.
2

Find a site
&
contact them
First, find the list of agencies that are approved for your course on pages 4-16.
Then, read through the page for each site that is approved for your course.
This is what an agency's page looks like.
Check out the "Quick Reference" area on the right.
Discover where the site is located, what their focus is and any special requirements they have.
Learn when they need volunteers.
Check out all of the sites approved for your course, and then pick your favorite to contact.
You MUST choose a site that is listed in the directory and approved for your class!
Check the course approval bar to make sure you can volunteer at the site for class credit.
A green arrow above your course number = approved!
A red cross = NOT APPROVED!
Check out what they might ask you to do by reading the "opportunities" section,
Use the contact information that is in the Agency Directory.
When you get in contact with the volunteer coordinator, talk to them about available service opportunities at their site to see if there is an opportunity that would work for you.
Make sure the assignment you agree to fits in your schedule and meets your course requirements.
If you leave a message,
wait
5
days before you follow-up.

Some volunteer coordinators are volunteers themselves and may not be in the office every day.
Not sure what to say when you call or email?

Use the phone script from page 9 of the Student Handbook!
DON'T
FREAK
OUT!
Once you come to a verbal agreement about a volunteer assignment, you are ready to move to the next step!
