NHTI encourages you to get involved in community service by working with non-profit organizations in Concord and in the local community. You can help give back to your community through the many opportunities NHTI offers. Fill out the Volunteer Inquiry and someone from the Office of Student Life will assist you.
We are committed to promoting service learning opportunities, which infuse a community service experience into the curriculum of a course to enrich the educational experience and to provide meaningful service to the community. Service learning opportunities link theory with direct experience, giving you greater responsibility for your learning and developing a richer context by making the academic subject relevant to real-world experience.
Courses that have an integrated and formalized service learning component are designated on your college transcript by a notation of “SRV” in the course title, facilitating recognition of a national standard of collegiate service learning.
Each year, over 500 students participate in service learning at NHTI, totaling in excess of 4,000 hours of service. The number of courses incorporating service learning continues to grow across the many academic departments in response to community needs.
