CCLA Student Leader Reflections
The Center for Civic Learning & Action hires student leaders to work on various projects throughout the year that involve the Dickinson and Cumberland County communities. Below are some reflections from past and current students.
- Carlisle Borough Ambassador 2020-21 Reflection: From National to Local: Carlisle Borough Takes Strides for Anti-Racism

- Dickinson College Student's Build Skills, Give Back Through Social-distance Internships: Students Gain Critical Skills for the Covid-19 Era While Helping Local Nonprofits
Dickinson College is a Campus Compact member. As Campus Compact writes on their webpage, this fellowship "recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers at Campus Compact member institutions." These fellows receive virtual learning opportunities and networking through Campus Connect.
- Clara Roth '21 became a Newman Civic Fellow during the 2020-21 school year
The Center for Civic Learning & Action designed the Civic Innovation Competition to try to meet the needs of the Carlisle community. The most recent competition was held in the Fall 2020 and was directed towards K-12 students in our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
