Guttman Experiential Learning in Far Rockaway
Guttman Community College’s (formerly known as New Community College) second Community Days kicked off on Wednesday, April 17 and Thursday, April 18, 2013. Students participated in on-campus workshops and off-campus service activities hosted by partners from around New York City. In keeping with its commitment to experiential learning and its goal of using the city as an extension of the classroom, the Community Days have an integral part of the curriculum.
On April 18th, Guttman students joined one of its many partners, New York Cares, to help distribute food items to residents of Far Rockaway, one of the areas largely impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Next Community Days will take place on October 22-23.
