Welcome to the Office of Community Outreach and Service-Learning at John Jay College of Criminal Justice! The Office of Community Outreach and Service-Learning works to connect John Jay students to their neighboring communities and cultivate an awareness of community needs. The office also encourages students to become civically engaged, which can be in the form of individual volunteerism or organizational involvement. The Office of Community Outreach strives to create events and opportunities that give students a valuable out-of-classroom experience as well as provide opportunities to build their social capital. They maintain partnerships with both internal and external experts on matters of community outreach and service-learning.
Students, faculty, and staff can become involved in their community by taking advantage of the numerous opportunities that the Office of Community Outreach provides. Recent projects have included hunger and homelessness awareness workshops, Oxfam Hunger Banquets, and our Fourth “Treats for Troops” campaigns for which the office sent a total of more than 110 boxes (35 lbs each) to John Jay students deployed overseas. The office also maintains partnerships with organizations such as the Center for Court Innovation, New York Cares, Safe Horizon, Just Food, St. Paul the Apostle’s Soup Kitchen, and many others.
Action, commitment, service, and learning are all integral parts of the John Jay College experience and there is always a need for dedicated students willing to contribute to the betterment of their communities. The office strives to enable students to take a positive approach to improving their neighborhoods and their John Jay experience.
Students can contribute their input as to ideas and projects they would like to see developed within their community. The office will also help students generate their own service and advocacy projects. Let us hear your ideas and suggestions. For upcoming event information, please don’t hesitate to stop by!
