Service Learning increases students’ understanding of others, awareness of community needs and helps develop cross-cultural awareness. Being involved in the community also helps students to prepare for the work place and gain real life experience that is valuable to employers.

The American Association of Community Colleges definition of Service Learning:

“Service learning combines community service with academic instruction, focusing on critical reflective thinking and personal and civic responsibility. Service Learning programs involve students in activities that address community-identified needs, while developing their academic skills and commitment to their community.”
