FGCU Community Engagement director Jessica Rhea at NFN4Good TechClub SWFL
The topic for the 501 Techclub / Netsquared meeting was: “Using Community Engagement and Service Learning to Enhance NP Effectiveness” and as Jessica Rhea, director for Community Engagement at the Florida Gulf Coast University connected with the members of the 501 Techclub and discussed the various ways FGCU students can practice civic engagement and social learning during the semesters and outside the classroom.
Service Learning is an Education/Training model which places students in real-life community service situations. Come hear how you can impact your organization through a partnership with FGCU students. Nonprofit organizations can further their mission while helping to mentor a student. The most sustainable model for collaboration is when a connection with a faculty members is established and the project/work spreads over more than one semester and provides continuing education benefits to all three partners: Orgainization, Students as well as the university.
