"Service-learning is an experiential learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with academic instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.” - National Service-Learning Clearinghouse
Each semester, a growing number of courses at San Diego City College offer a component of service either as an option or a requirement. Students are placed in educational or non-profit settings where they apply course theory in real world settings. Examples here at City are Biology students working in the SEEDS at City garden and accounting students helping mid-City residents file their claims for Earned Income Tax Credits.
Service learning presents opportunities for students to experience learning in the "real world"; explore professions; enhance self-confidence, learn new skills and network to future job opportunities.
