Just like the rest of us, FGCU students are busy! However, they are always seeking
great experiences in the community. Here are the three best ways to connect your needs
to their availability.
Community Partner Database
Once you have completed the Letter of Engagement, you are encouraged to complete this form to add your nonprofit or government agency to the database used across campus by
students, faculty, and staff. Before adding your organization, please look here to see if your organization is already in the database. If your page simply needs
updated, please email email@example.com.
Guided Service Trips
Guided Service Trips are experiences in which a representative from our office and
roughly 5-10 FGCU students will participate in service with your organization (usually
for about 2-4 hours at a time). Our goal is to make service-learning as accessible
as possible to new students and those who have not volunteered in the past. This program
is intended to introduce students to service-learning and provide a fun learning environment.
If you are a registered nonprofit, not-for-profit, or government agency (or FGCU department)
and are interested in hosting students at your location as part of a Guided Service
Trip, please complete the service-learning request form and indicate your interest in the last section of the form.
To learn more and explore participation in a future event below, please contact Justin
Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Taking place within the first month of fall and spring semesters, our Service-Learning
Fairs are opportunities for nonprofits and government agencies to connect with FGCU
students regarding service-learning opportunities. The frameworks from which our office
operates (found under the About Us section) are deeply integrated into this event
as community partners are categorized by Sustainable Development Goals and career
readiness skills are highlighted within the service-learning opportunities. Learn more and RSVP on our Eventbrite page
