Service Leaders

Service LeadersThe Service Leaders program is a partnership between AmeriCorps, Sonoma State University, Santa Rosa Junior College, and several local community agencies. The Service Leaders program creates new and strengthens existing programs in their mission to serve our local community. Service Leaders engages college students in addressing community needs by getting things done. Service Leaders work with families in local health clinics, support children in after school and Saturday programs, and create lasting partnerships between the community and Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College. The AmeriCorps Service Leaders are campus leaders in community service and service learning. The Service Leaders program connects AmeriCorps with academically based programs, allowing participants to earn college credit while serving the local community.

Our Mission
