 It's easy to participate! AFTER you attend ANY 3 SWC virtual workshops or events, submit the J-Pack Workshops/Events Completion Form by clicking on the below red button to let us know you have completed your three (3) workshops or events.  Not sure which workshops to take? View some student focused workshop options on the SWC Calendar.  We will then send you a $50 electronic gift card and a certificate of completion.  Please allow 1-2 weeks for processing. Please contact Nick Fox at nfox@swccd.edu with any questions.
