Service Learning Benefits

Volunteer and service-learning experiences are reciprocally beneficial for both the community and students. For many community organizations, students augment service delivery and meet crucial human needs. For students, community service is an opportunity to enrich and apply classroom knowledge; explore careers or majors; develop civic skills; enhance personal growth and self-image; develop job connections; and most of all foster a concern for social responsibility and commitment to human service.
