What is Service Learning?

We are often asked What is Service Learning? Is it not the same as community service?

They are very different but have the similarity of service and community.

Service Learning is teaching and learning that connects meaningful action; with the community, learning, personal growth, caring, and responsibility. It empowers students to develop new skills and knowledge through integrated connections to the curriculum.

Community Service is well intended, but often is; a one off, used to count hours, lacks community collaboration, and does not connect to student learning.

We believe all schools and organizations should implement sustainable service learning programs.

We can help your school or organization move from Community Service into Service Learning!
