What is the Community Outreach Opportunity Program (COOP)?

The Community Outreach Opportunity Program (COOP) offers community service opportunities, connecting WVNCC students and employees with area non-profit agencies and various philanthropic projects -- creating positive change for our community as well as educational experiences for our students and staff. We recognize that WVNCC students benefit through their interactions with philanthropic endeavors. The local community and various service projects serve as co-educators for our students, leading them to significant discoveries about themselves and their educational, vocational, and personal goals.


Through our extensive outreach efforts, WVNCC has been named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service each year since its founding in 2006. ‘The Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions that reflect the values of exemplary community service and achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities. This honor is recognition from the highest levels of the federal government of an institution’s commitment to service and civic engagement on its campus and in our nation.’
