The Sycamore Service Corps program is designed as a service-learning experience for our members. Participation in the program involves various reflective activities, training, discussion, and other professional development opportunities. The combination of service and guided reflection will help members become more aware of the issues facing the world, continue to be more actively involved in the community, and become more socially responsible citizens. While members become more aware and committed to civic involvement, they also assist the organization to meet its goals and mission.
