Service learning is a teaching pedagogy that engages students in active participation in an integrated curriculum of learning and service that meets the needs of the community. Service learning can be infused into the academic curriculum, or can be incorporated into an after-school program.
[A] unique opportunity for America's young people -- from kindergarten to university students -- to get involved with their communities in a tangible way by integrating service projects with classroom learning. Service-learning engages students in the educational process, using what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems. Students not only learn about democracy and citizenship, they become actively contributing citizens and community members through the service they perform.
Service-learning can be applied across all subjects and grade levels; it can involve a single student or group of students, a classroom or an entire school. Students build character and become active participants as they work with others in their school and community to create service projects in areas like education, public safety, and the environment.For more information on service learning visit:
