What is Community Service-Learning?
Community Service-Learning (CSL) is a method of experiential learning that emphasizes action, reflection and real-world engagement.
How is it different from volunteerism?
While the term ‘volunteering’ suggests a vertical charity model, service is about mutual learning. It’s about a reciprocal relationship between participants and the community members they work with.
What does the Campus to Community program use?
The Campus to Community program uses a community service-learning model to encourage students to participate in service.
The benefits of community service-learning include:
- Participants can link their academic experience to their community.
- Participants better understand the larger effects of their contributions.
- Participants understand their roles as global citizens, especially in relation to social change.
