A New Approach to Community Services Through Community Involvement.
Goldman, Leroy H.
Community service programs in the junior college, a relatively new area of interest and attention, are growing rapidly and are expanding. One area that has not received much emphasis concerns community involvement in the institution. The author presents an overview of existing community service programs, in addition to interviews conducted at seven California junior colleges regarding community services and community involvement. There was an attempt to explore a method of community involvement that can be used as a model at other institutions. The Educational Participation in Communities (EPIC) program at Los Angeles City College, California, is reviewed in detail. A student volunteer program designed to involve students in the solution of urban problems, this is an outgrowth of a desire of students, faculty, and individuals from the community who are interested in a genuine, positive program of community involvement to aid young people from less privileged homes.
