Community Service Learning

What is Service-Learning?
Service-learning combines service to the community with student learning in a way that improves both the student and the community. According to the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993, service-learning:
  • is a method whereby students learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully organized service that is conducted in and meets the needs of communities;
  • is coordinated with an elementary school, secondary school, institution of higher education, or community service program and the community;
  • helps foster civic responsibility;
  • is integrated into and enhances the academic curriculum of the students, or the education components of the community service program in which the participants are enrolled; and
  • provides structured time for students or participants to reflect on the service experience.
