What is Service?
Service at Warner Pacific College is work done to meet the tangible needs of our neighbors in the city of Portland and beyond. Through a variety of engaging curricular and co-curricular service learning opportunities, students will be consistently involved in experiential learning and gain the ability to apply learning beyond the classroom. At Warner Pacific, students are encouraged to engage in the College’s Christ-centered identity through utilizing their skills, passions, and education to work toward social justice through consistent direct service in the community. All service done at WP directly connects to one of seven “service categories”:
- Economic Equity
- Gender Equity
- Racial/Ethnic Equity
- Youth & Child Support
- Support for the Elderly & Disabled
- Interfaith Relationship
- Common Day of Service
- MLK Serve Day
- Mentoring and tutoring at local public schools
