Service Learning Hours

Service learning is a proven civic education practice that extends learning into the community and builds a strong sense of agency among young people. Service learning connects classroom curriculum with community research and action projects that contribute to democratic life. Service learning projects help students develop their social, intellectual, and emotional capacities as they engage in critical thinking, community relationship building, leadership, and reflection.


Service learning as a powerful teaching and learning methodology. When tied to classroom curriculum, service learning can deliver important academic, civic and social/emotional outcomes. In order for students to experience the full power and impact of service learning, however, it is important that they are well prepared for the service experience. Preparation enables students to connect academics to authentic experiences. It also enables them to formulate and explore important questions pertaining to the service project. Establishing service and learning goals at the outset of the project along with good guiding questions can enable students to have a richer experience.
