Service Learning

  • “Is a method of teaching, learning and reflecting that combines academic classroom curriculum with meaningful service, frequently youth service, throughout the community .”

Benefits of service learning

Benefits of Service Learning

  • Community-based organizations that engage young people in service and service-learning point to the following kinds of benefits:     The opportunity to expand their mission and reach without substantially increasing costs by engaging a cadre of competent, motivated young people.

  • New energy, ideas, and enthusiasm as well as specialized skills that young people can bring to the organization.

  • Increased public support and visibility in the community as young people become ambassadors for the agency in their schools, homes, and other networks.

  • New partnerships and resources.

  • A new generation of volunteers for their own organization or cause.

  • Benefits for Service Recipients, Communities, and Society     Beyond the young people the organizations directly involve, community-based service-learning benefits the people served, their communities, and, ultimately, society:     It meets real needs and priorities for individuals and communities, as young people bring new energy, capacity, and creative ideas.

  • Community residents have opportunities to build positive relationships with young people.

  • Communities see youth in a different way—as resources, not problems.

  • A new generation of caring and experienced citizens, activists, and volunteers is cultivated.
