What Is Community Service Learning?
The Corporation for National and Community Service defines community service learning as "a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities."
The two major components of community service learning in an academic course are:
- The student's participation in a community service activity connected to course materials and
- The student's active reflection on the meaning of that service
Reflection activities may range from classroom discussions to journaling to research papers connected to the service activities.
