Service Learning

You really can change the world!

Service Learning is a teaching method where students apply what they are learning in the classroom to meet real community needs. Join your fellow students in Service Learning and discover how to make a difference in the New Orleans community while bringing course concepts to life.

Delgado faculty have partnered with Habitat for Humanity, the Red Cross, the New Orleans Public School System and many other organizations that serve the Greater New Orleans region to design projects specific to their course learning objectives.

By participating in a Service Learning course you will

  • Develop a deeper understanding and application of course material in a real-world setting.
  • Help those in need while earning college credit.
  • Gain experience to enhance your resume or application for further education.
