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 is to simultaneously provide opportunities for personal
and career development for college students while assisting them
to meet the costs of their education and to build community by linking
higher education with defined community needs. Service Leaders is
addressing the increasing need for accessible health care and health
education for the socioeconomically disadvantaged community in Sonoma
County. Service Leaders address defined community health and education
needs with a well-articulated site plan, on-going support, and a
commitment to service.
