Realizing the significance of community service, the Saudi Mining Polytechnic (SMP) offers community-based programs and services to boost the cognitive economy of the local community. For instance, SMP holds a safety exhibition on a permanent basis, because it recognizes the importance of safety in the society. SMP also opens to the community the doors of the House of Knowledge for the encouragement of community members to read in all fields and in a variety of ways. Moreover, SMP holds summer cultural programs to train youth on the cognitive, skill-based, and entertainment contents.
