The Center for Civic Engagement Literacy Programs offer WSU students service-learning opportunities to work with children and youth in the community of Pullman, as well as the rural communities of Whitman County including Albion, Colton, Colfax, Garfield, and Palouse. By participating in Academic Mentoring, Pen Friends, and special event programs, WSU students have the chance to interact with K-12 youth in a meaningful learning experience that allows them to apply their academic knowledge in a real world setting and provides academic support for public school students. The most important reason to be involved, however, is to enrich the life of a child or youth.
