Service-Learning is characterized by a deliberate connection between academic curriculum and community service. Students’ service can be a component of course curriculum and becomes a vehicle for learning course material. Students reflect on their service, relate it to coursework, and evaluate what they are learning. Service-learning also provides students the opportunity to hone job skills. (More about service learning is available at this link: http://www.aacc.nche.edu/Resources/aaccprograms/horizons/Pages/default.aspx.)
