Commodores Care

GO THE EXTRA SMILE :)

Gulf Coast State College has a history of committing volunteer time in our service district of Bay, Gulf, and Franklin Counties. In August 2016, the College introduced the Commodores Care campaign to expand our volunteerism efforts. Gulf Coast is committed to linking our employees to meaningful volunteer opportunities that support community-driven change with the added benefit of personal and professional development.
