Community Service Learning
Community service learning (CSL) allows you to improve your academic skills by doing hands-on volunteer service outside of the classroom that addresses local community needs.
At SF State, the hours you complete in officially-recognized community service learning classes (~30 per semester) are recorded on your Official Transcript. This enhances scholarship and/or graduate school applications, and shows future employers that you have real-world job experience. At SF State, nearly 200 service learning courses are available to you.
