Service-Learning Community Partners

The Rubenstein School values its community partnerships and has worked with hundreds of community groups, non-profit organizations, schools, churches, municipalities, and state and federal agencies through service-learning projects. This list of community partner organizations was started in the fall of 2011 and will be expanded upon each semester as future service-learning courses foster partnerships with new community partners.

Resources for Community Partners

  • There are different ways that community partners can engage with Rubenstein School students, including through internships, service-learning courses, and volunteer opportunities. If you are a community partner and you are unsure of the type of partnership that might be appropriate for your organization and/or any potential student projects, see our Community Partnership Opportunities (PDF) guide.
  • UVM's Office of Community-University Partnerships and Service-Learning has resources for community agencies that are interested in becoming partners in service-learning. See their website for more information.
  • California State University's Center for Community Engagement has also developed a Community Partner Service-Learning Guidebook (pdf). This guide has been designed to be a resource tool for community partners involved with service learning faculty and courses. The resource guide provides community partners with guidance on your role as a co-educator, designing a service-learning project, preparing studetns to serve at your organization, and facilitating student reflection activities.
