Service-Learning Opportunities

Exciting news!  

Wake Tech is pleased to announce a new service-learning pathway available starting in Spring 2020. The BRIDGES program (Building Refugee Initiatives to Develop Goals for Educational Success) is a partnership designed to support high school juniors or seniors who are either refugees or children of refugees in gaining a deeper understanding of the college entrance process while becoming more acquainted with the expectations of the college setting. These students will partner with Wake Tech Service Learning Mentors for 10 hours of support and guidance in this unique cross-cultural exchange model. Wake Tech students who engage in this opportunity will enhance their skills in communication, leadership, and applicable classroom learning while building strong collaboration within the community.

If you are interested in participating in this program as a student, faculty member or referring agency, please complete this short google form so that we can follow up with you.
