At DCCC, we feel our students benefit from a number of service-learning activities - a combination of community service and academic instruction. The focus is on learning while exploring personal and civic responsibility. 

It involves students in activities that address community-identified needs, while developing academic skills.

Examples of service learning activities include: 

  • Math students tutoring third-graders in arithmetic.
  • English students assisting in an adult literacy program.
  • Sociology students educating their peers on HIV/AIDS prevention.
  • Nursing students providing home health care to the elderly or disabled.
  • Chemistry students teaching elementary school students about the proper disposal of household hazardous waste.
  • Law Enforcement students teaching community members how to set up a neighborhood watch program.
  • Accounting students helping senior citizens with their tax returns.
