Volunteering is a great way to give back to SCC. There are a number of opportunities available through the various College and Foundation programs, such as tutoring, mentoring, assisting special programs, and helping out during fundraising events. Below are a few examples:
SCC Educational Foundation
SCCEF operates fundraisers and other special events on and off campus that are always in need of volunteers, such as Solano Business Connections, the SCC Annual Benefit Gala, and Tee Off for Athletes Golf Invitational.
In addition, volunteer opportunities are available for qualified individuals to serve on the SCCEF Board of Directors and Committees, including the Alumni Committee and Scholarship Committee.
The SCC Horticulture and Plant Science program operates a community garden open to the public, as well as a garden center involved in plant propagation and sales. In addition, the program coordinates the activities on the Horticulture Club. Volunteers are needed to assist with general gardening activities and the Horticulture Club.
