Service Learning is a method of instruction in which students learn by participating in hands-on assignments or projects in the community. The work the students engage in is directly related to the objectives of their class an meets the need of the community organization. It is a great way to gain work experience in your field of study, and to strengthen your resume or transfer application.
The office of Service-Learning (SL) can advise you about courses that offer SL as a requirement or option and make contacts for you with community agencies and organizations. Club members seeking to fulfill their service requirement may contact the coordinator for suggestions on how to meet that obligation. Contact Lisa Mahon at (413) 552-2369 or drop by DON 357 for more information on service-learning and community-based organizations.
