Training and Learning

While there are many ways to engage in service, at the Pace Center for Civic Engagement we believe a critical component to doing service well is being well planned and well prepared. 

Our suite of interactive workshops prepare students for particular roles in service through an exploration of their values, best practices in entering and working with communities, and learning how to process service experiences. For students who are interested in a deeper exploration of a particular topic or issue, small learning cohorts rooted in our learning curriculum provide students with an opportunity to work closely with a staff advisor to engage regularly.  

Service can take on many forms, but one thing that is constant is that it provides a beautiful opportunity for you to learn about yourself and others while having a positive impact on communities.
