Shasta College Center for Community Engagement



Shasta College Center for Community Engagement (SCCCE) is a collaboration between education institutions and the larger community (locally to globally) for the sharing of knowledge and resources.

Their mission is “to foster a learning community that facilitates learning for civic engagement in our local and global communities and that addresses societal challenges through long-term sustainable partnerships through community engagement.”

They do this through volunteerism; service learning; community service; alternative spring/summer breaks; and field education/work.

The SCCCE is guided by an active advisory board composed of students, community partners, K-12 representatives, faculty, staff and administration with the mandate to support the center’s mission.
