Service-Learning in Out-of-School Time
Posted by on October 6, 2008
Are you thinking about adding a service-learning component to your youth program? Would you like to enhance existing youth volunteer activities with more intentional learning outcomes and opportunities for structured reflection? If so, take a look at the latest edition of Youth Impact, created by the LEARNS partners for youth-serving national service programs. Titled “Beyond the Classroom: Service-Learning in Out-of-School Time,” it outlines the key steps to designing and implementing a successful service-learning project in any setting.
