Community Service Courses

Community Service 1 and 101

Fresno State students can enroll in two different courses that provide them with an in-depth community service-learning experience and provide academic credit in exchange for volunteer service.  Students enrolled in theses courses can select where they wish to complete their service from hundreds of community based organizations and can tailor the experience to fit their schedule and interests.  The two courses available to students are Community Service 1: Community Service-Learning and Community Service 101: Community Service Internships.  These courses are open to all students regardless of major or year in school.
