Written by Andrea Yoder Clark, Yoder Clark & Co. Consulting
What is power and what does it have to do with service-learning? In a recent study, seven service-learning pioneers and seven service-learning emerging leaders were asked to respond to this two-pronged question (Yoder Clark, 2009). In this study, power was defined using the theoretical tradition of critical theory. Critical theorists examine relationships of power in society and document how power is shared and transferred between social groups (Darder, Baltadano & Torres, 2003).
