Service Learning

Service work connects classroom learning to real world  experiences and makes students more aware of their surroundings. Research suggests that service learning can make a student more altruistic and caring.  The development of interpersonal skills through service learning projects cannot be overstated.  There is significant evidence to suggest that students who participate in service learning activities show gains on achievement tests in reading and basic skills and earn higher grade point averages. Schools using service learning on a regular basis report higher attendance and stronger student motivation. Finally, the impact on communities where service learning has become a part of the curriculum is positive. In these environments students are perceived as valued resources and contributing members of the community.
