The Moraine Park Experience
Moraine Park’s 2018 Community Partnership Award Recipient
Moraine Park Technical College has presented the Fond du Lac Senior Center with its 2018 Community Partnership Award. This award recognizes a community non-profit organization or business partner who has gone above and beyond in their role of working with Moraine Park students in service-learning opportunities. Since the fall of 2015, the Moraine Park Technical College Information Technology(IT) club students have had the opportunity to host Tech Tyme for two-hours every Thursday at the senior center. This opportunity was presented to address a need expressed by the senior center, to help the older population navigate the ever-changing world of technology. Opportunities such as this allow students to make community connections prior to graduation and work through real-life scenarios. The partnership created by Moraine Park Technical College and the Fond du Lac Senior Center has positively benefited both of the organizations, the student volunteers, and the seniors that are being served.
