Local Projects in Vermont

Through our many Service Learning opportunities, students enrolled in CDAE classes make a difference, doing real work in the Vermont community.

By partnering with community groups, businesses, nonpforits and other organizations throughout Vermont, many CDAE courses conduct research and projects that can be used for policy changes, community designs, new technologies, and more.
