Abstract

Service learning takes place in schools and youth groups across America. Service-learning connects classroom studies with the natural caring and concern young people have for their world. Service-learning allows young people to contribute to solving problems by helping others in their school community, their neighborhood, or around the world. When students apply what they are learning in ways that help others, the results are memorable. Students gain lessons that last a lifetime. While learning, they develop the ability to contribute to a better society and we all benefit. A Guide for Parents provides information about your role in participating in and promoting this effective way of teaching.
