MACC provides opportunities for networking, partnership building and cross-stream training through our partnerships with K-12 teachers and administrators, AmeriCorps, SeniorCorps, community-based organizations and public agencies.
MACC offers competitive grants to foster innovative community service and service learning programs in the Commonwealth.
Public Education and Legislative Outreach
Massachusetts Campus Compact and national Campus Compact monitor state and national policy issues relevant to campus service and encourage legislation that supports and funds community service and service learning programs. Relevant legislative information is regularly included in member mailings and is posted through the MACC listserv.
Training and Technical Assistance
Faculty, staff, students and community partners attend training, conferences, workshops and other meetings at member rates. These events promote service learning and community service, cultivate a discourse on current issues, share information and program models, and stimulate leadership, collaboration and partnership building. MACC also assists members in gaining knowledge about “best practices” and aids campuses in developing strategies for the design, development, implementation and management of campus-specific programs.
Resources and Publications
Publications on new and existing community service and service learning initiatives, current research, syllabi, curricula, and examples of best practices are maintained in our office for use by member institutions. MACC also publishes a newsletter and maintains a web page which posts event information, program information, member directory and links to other organizations in the service network. MACC members are also invited to subscribe to the MACC listserv to receive information on upcoming events, funding opportunities, and other resources.
