Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful, direct community service with academic study to enrich learning, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. Because service learning incorporates academic learning and reflection components, it goes beyond the scope of field experience or volunteering. Students’ service experience is evaluated based on learning outcomes. Students are required to analyze and evaluate their learning experiences with an emphasis on civic responsibility and citizenship.
The Eastfield College Service Learning Program gives students practical learning experiences through community service and civic engagement endeavors.
