The Events Committee plans and carries out a variety of social gatherings where everyone can blow off some steam and get to know each other. The bonds we make as Scholars have no bounds, and our goal is to create environments where these bonds can be formed and reinforced.
The Outreach Committee has for main goal to reach out to students, both on the Glendale Community College campus and to prospective Scholars from local high schools. Outreach's main job is to provide all necessary information and encouragement to join the Scholars Program. The goals are to show students the benefits of joining the Scholars Program as well as to represent what the Glendale Community College Scholars Program is all about in the best ways that they can.
The objective of the Community Service Committee is to connect the Scholars on campus with the world around them. This is done through community service opportunities where students can give back to the community and make a difference in the world. Members will gain volunteer experience with various organizations and get in touch with their compassionate side. This committee is about growth on both a personal and worldly scale.
The Fundraising Committee develops and implements social fundraisers in order to help fund the program, and allow members to interact with each other. They host an array of fundraisers both on and off-campus. The money generated helps fund scholarships for students at Glendale Community College, events hosted by the program, and for giving back to other organizations on campus. By contributing to the planning of these fundraisers, members have an escape from everyday worries, and get to further enjoy what they have worked hard to put together.
Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA)
The VAPA Committee aims to showcase the creativity of the GCC community through various artistic media such as poetry, photography, fashion, and music. All of these works and memories will be collected to publish a creative-arts journal at the end of the year. Committee members, in turn, will be involved in planning VAPA events and publishing the Journal. The VAPA Committee serves as a reminder to Scholars that college is not just about academics and resume-building; it is also about exploring personal talents and creativity.
