What Is Service-Learning?
Service-Learning is a specially designed model of experiential-learning which combines service at a community organization with intentional learning outcomes achieved through critical, reflective thinking. Hence, equal emphasis is placed on both the service and the learning (service-learning). Essential components of service learning include: critical reflection, reciprocity, collaboration, and evaluation.
