Service Experiences for Re-Vitalizing Education (SERVE)

The SERVE Program creates an opportunity for students at the undergraduate level, in particular for those who are considering careers in K-12 education, to learn about the realities of urban classrooms and the needs of diverse K-12 student population. SERVE interns work with students individually and in small groups to provide academic support and personal growth. It is through this involvement that CSULB students assess their career goals and provide direct service to students and teachers in grades K-12 and to their communities.
