Community Involement

Look at the event calendar

The Career and Community Services center at Advanced Training, encourages students to share their talents, examine their values and become active citizens. Advanced Training creates and supports opportunities that responds to the needs of the community and helps students give back in a positive way. Community services for students is not just a one-time event but a way of life by providing students with rewarding opportunities to put their skills and passions to work for others.

As there are several benefits in volunteering, the best known reason is the impact in which it has on the community. Over 50 percent of the Advanced Training students participate in volunteer activities. The impact of volunteering can be both large and small. Even the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, animals, and organizations in need within the community. Not only does the impact help for the greater good of the community but the impact can be seen in lives of those that volunteer, their friends and family. Volunteer activities at Advanced Training have included events such as park cleanups, school projects, serving food at local food pantry and sponsoring health fairs open to the community. These real life experiences that students gain from service will shape and launch both their personal and professional life.

We have provide the connection between the classroom and the community. We strive to connect students, faculty, staff and the community with meaningful service experiences. That is why, we encourage all who volunteer to join in the fun and help make our community a better place. From blood drives with American Red Cross to supporting the fight against Breast cancer with San Diego Chargers, the students of Advanced Training are applying what they learn in class and in life to communities in need of support.

We are committed to serve our community and we take great pride in providing our students with opportunities to become engaged and active members in society.
