WHAT IS SERVICE LEARNING? Service-learning is a credit-bearing, educational experience in which students: 1) participate in an organized service activity that meets identified on- and off-campus community needs and 2) reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility (Committee Minutes, January 25, 2001). http://www2.byui.edu/ServiceLearning/subpages/fgdefinition.htm
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SERVICE LEARNING? When participating in Service Learning, you are able to give back to your community. It is always a very rewarding experience, and it is wonderful knowing that you are doing your part to help others.
