[Community Service Program, Westmont College.]
This report describes a 2-year project at Westmont College, California, which established a Community Service Program with the purposes of decreasing student debt and increasing student participation in community organizations. Eligible students worked 8-10 hours per week for a qualified community agency and received credit towards tuition for the following academic year or wages (if they qualified for work study). During the 2-year period, approximately 15 students chose to use the program to assist with debt reduction and approximately 55 students earned work study funds. Evaluation indicated that both the students and the agency representatives were very pleased with the program, which has been institutionalized by the college. Program materials (e.g., letters, forms, learning plan forms, student/agency agreement, a listing of community agencies, questionnaires) are attached. (DB)
