Salt Lake Community College provides its students with an array of opportunities that improve resumes and help with university applications.
One such option is SLiCE, or Student Leaders in Civic Engagement. The SLiCE program, operating under the Thayne Center for Service & Learning, allows students to not only improve their resumes, but find their passions and serve the community as well.
“SLiCE is a great place for students who are interested becoming more active citizens, students who want to explore their interests and passions, and for students who are out to change the world,” says Thayne Center service leadership coordinator Brandon Devlin.
The program is for those who want to make a difference in the community and learn leadership skills in the process. Students in the SLiCE program build a network with community nonprofits, help to educate fellow students, and coordinate volunteer activities, among other activities.
SLiCE has spearheaded some of the best services at SLCC, such as the Bruin Pantry, the Community Garden, Alternative Spring Break and the Earth Day celebration. These services have helped many at SLCC, and without the volunteers at the Thayne Center and the SLiCE program, they might not exist.
In addition to resume building and community networking, SLiCE offers tuition waivers to help students with living expenses. Students who want to learn more about SLiCE and how to apply can visit the Thayne Center website or call 801-957-4555.
