“Volunteering as a Students in Service member has completely changed my life and how I see the world. Every project I take on, I learn something new about myself and about the community.”

Nicole Muth
Senior, double-majoring in
Psychology and Women’s Studies
California State University, Fullerton

“I think when a student is committed to serve hundreds of hours, that desire does not go away when the program ends for them. I have seen several students do more than one term and continue their service through non-profits after the program is completed.”

Kathryn Wood
Associate Director of
Community Service Learning
University of Redlands

Five hundred students from more than 20 California campuses participate each year in California Campus Compact’s Students in Service AmeriCorps program, which encourages and supports college and university students to make a difference in their communities while earning an education scholarship.

California Campus Compact makes available more than $600,000 in scholarship awards for participating students. Upon successfully completing a term of service, students receive a scholarship valued at between $1,100 and $2,600, depending upon the number of hours of service they contribute.

For many of our member colleges and universities, the Students in Service program is one of the initial methods used to inspire and encourage students to get involved and make a lifelong commitment to service – and also one of the key methods of instilling a culture of service on their campuses.

Throughout the Students in Service program in California, students are engaged in providing direct service to the community – and recruiting thousands of their peers to join them in volunteering. Students are involved in addressing every major issue confronting California – from access to and success in higher education to crime, economic development, healthcare and health disparities to homelessness, immigrant rights and poverty.
