Service-Learning Courses

Service-Learning (S-L) is a form of experiential learning for students and a teaching tool for faculty that purposefully integrates academics and service or community-engaged projects to meet classroom and community goals throughout the semester. As part of their coursework, students partner with community-based organizations, nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies as a way to learn the course material.

Partner with a community-engaged course

Our team supports 150+ community-engaged partnerships each semester, primarily through our community-engaged courses. Any social-change oriented entity can partner with our team, you do not need to be a formal 501(c)3 or school.
