Service-learning is an instructional strategy that combines meaningful service to the community with curriculum-based learning. Students improve their academic and civic skills by applying what they learn in school to the real world. Students then reflect on their experiences to reinforce the link between their service and their learning.
Service-learning is a form of civic education that provides student with opportunities to explore what it means to be an active, engaged citizen.
