Sinclair College

Love Your Community

“Find the need and endeavor to meet it.” - David A. Sinclair

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – Dr. Seuss

From the college's beginnings in 1887, the mission of Sinclair has been linked to making our community a better place, and the first step is to get involved – in your Sinclair community as well as the community in which you live. 

Volunteering is a vital way to give back to our communities, but it’s not the only way to be involved.

On campus, it could be attending a Sinclair Talks or diversity event, or asking a co-worker to lunch or joining a committee.

Beyond the college, try joining a local service organization, ushering at an area performance, helping out an area animal shelter or volunteering for a specific project.  Getting involved in your work or home community can help you make friends, learn new skills, and even help you feel happier and healthier.  And there is no better way to stay motivated than to find something you are passionate about.
