Service + Learning = Service-Learning
Service: Service means contributing or helping to benefit others and the common good.
Learning: Learning means gaining understanding of a subject of skill through study, experience, or an exchange of ideas.
Service-Learning: The ideas of service and learning combine to create service-learning. Investigation, preparation, action, reflection, and demonstration are the five stages of service-learning. By understanding how each stage works, you can be more effective in making plans to help in your community.
