We are a community that believes in giving back,
making a difference, and being a part of
something bigger than ourselves.
Here are some of the ways we give back:
Reducing Landfill Waste
The Hospitality, Culinary and Tourism Institute (HCTI) at FCC is working with a local composting company to reduce landfill waste.
FCC students in the Culinary II course finished up their semester by cooking meals that were donated to the food bank at the Frederick Community Action Agency in downtown Frederick.
An FCC employee developed a program to help young people "Get the most out of life."
FCPS SUCCESS Program
We are proud of a new partnership between our student teachers and students from the FCPS SUCCESS program, a secondary transition/vocational education program designed for students 18-21 years of age with disabilities.
Since 2006, assistant professor of Art Shane Sellers has worked with the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek to get unused or outgrown bikes out of our garages and into the hands of people who desperately need them.
FCC students teamed with Hood College counterparts to clean up the creek in Frederick’s Willowdale Park, as part of the Waterway Cleanup Service Project.
Gardens & Scarecrows
Students in the FCC Leadership Legacy program helped prepare gardens at Fox Haven, which provides organic produce for people in need.
Middle School Mentoring
FCC employees mentor students at Monocacy Middle School where they assist with homework, discuss career and future plans, and play games.
A group of administrators teamed with the Frederick City Parks and Recreation Department to beautify Willowdale Park along Rock Creek near Route 40 in Frederick.
