Community Outreach

  • Cape Cod Tech’s Community Service Learning Program will provide our students with an opportunity to enhance their social skills, encourage civic engagement and promote community responsibility. Through students working in their communities serving their neighbors and sharing their unique talents and abilities, it will increase their understanding of the significance of a culture of service, citizenship and community responsibility.
     
    ”Service learning can be defined as a teaching method where guided or classroom learning is deepened through service to others in a process that provides structured time for reflection on a service experience and demonstration of the skills and knowledge acquired.”  - Cathryn Berger Kaye
