Students Share Service Learning Projects
Galloway, N.J. _ Each year some 1,200 students in 50 classes participate in a service learning project at Stockton.
The fall semester Office of Service-Learning Celebration of Service & Civic Engagement Mini-Grant Showcase, held in the Art Gallery, gave the campus community the opportunity to see the variety of ways Stockton faculty, students and staff support causes in their local community and around the world.
Some 40 projects were presented ranging from after-school tutoring for students in Atlantic City and Pleasantville to projects with residents of area senior and assisted living facilities. Students helped operate the Hopeful Grounds coffee shop to support the Atlantic City Rescue Mission and participated in beach cleanups.
A few groups did oral presentations, including students working with families at the New York Avenue apartments in Atlantic City, the No Shave November project to support David’s Dream and Believe, and SolesforSouls, supporting a non-profit that creates jobs through the distribution of shoes and clothing following disasters.
