Defining Service Learning

Service learning extends learning into the community and

builds a strong sense of agency among young people as

they engage in inquiry and critical thinking, community

relationship building, leadership, and reflection. By

connecting classroom curriculum with community research

and action projects, service learning projects help students

develop their social, intellectual, and emotional capacities

while contributing to democratic life.
