During the 1990-91 funding year, Collin County Community College (Texas) piloted a service-learning program, Students Utilizing Collin County's Educational and Service Systems (SUCCESS). SUCCESS involved students in community service activities for learning both about their careers and about their capabilities as agents for community change. The program provided opportunities through service agencies for vocational-technical students as a part of the curriculum for elective credit. The program was available to students of diverse abilities, backgrounds, levels of maturity, and academic achievement. Stipends were provided for participants. The SUCCESS Consortium, a fund-raising system, and Career-based Service Learning components were initiated at the college.
