2  THOSE WHO SERVE OTHERS, SERVE THEMSELVES  Ask not what your country can do for you, But what you can do for your country.  A sense of community and service. 2

3  For the Student  For the Community  For the School 3

4  Service-learning is a method of teaching, learning and reflecting that combines academic classroom curriculum with meaningful service, frequently youth service, throughout the community. As a teaching methodology, it falls under the philosophy of experiential education. More specifically, it integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, encourage lifelong civic engagement, and strengthen communities for the common good. (1) 4

5  Community service refers to service that a person performs for the benefit of his or her local community. People become involved in community service for a range of reasons — for some, serving community is an altruistic act, for others it is a punishment. (2) 5

9  Whose Ethics? (4)  UTILITARIANISM  “….is an ethical theory that says that the morality of an action is determined by its ultimate effects.”  ETHICAL RELATIVISM  “…..says that there are no objective or absolute standards of right and wrong.”  RATIONAL ETHICS  “… a philosophical theory that says ethical values can be determined by a proper application of human reason.” 9

10  SOCIAL CONTRACT THEORY  “… holds that right and wrong are measured by the obligations imposed on each individual by an implied agreement among all individuals within a particular social system”  ROLE MODEL ETHICS  “…. Is a philosophical theory that encourages people to pattern their behavior after admirable individuals whose activities provide examples of the proper way to act.” It is based on:  Honesty  Compassion  Fairness  Integrity 10

11  THEORIES OF MOTIVATION:  Responsibility, Recognition, Achievement, Involvement  CONTRIBUTIONS OF MANAGEMENT THEORISTS  Chester Barnard: A practitioner and a theorist who “argued that the purpose of the corporation was to serve society, and that the function of the executive was to instill this sense of moral purpose in the corporation’s employees.” (5)  STAKEHOLDER THEORY  Shareholders, Customers, Employees, Suppliers  Communities, Environment, the Government 11

12  GREENLEAF CENTER FOR SERVANT LEADERSHIP  WHAT IS SERVANT LEADERSHIP? The phrase “Servant Leadership” was coined by Robert K. Greenleaf in The Servant as Leader, an essay that he first published in 1970. In that essay, he said: " The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions…The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature. " 12

13 " The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. The best test, and difficult to administer, is: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society? Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived? “ (6) 13
