Service-Learning is a teaching and learning method that connects meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, personal growth and civic responsibility. Service-Learning enhances what is taught in the college by extending students' learning beyond the classroom and providing opportunities for students to use newly acquired skills and knowledge in real life situations in their own communities.
Examples of community service activities include tutoring elementary school students, assisting senior citizens, coaching elementary students in sports, teaching computer basics to senior citizens or other age groups, or providing literacy tutoring. Students may earn variable credits for Service-Learning through independent study credits.
