Service Learning Component

Students in service-learning projects usually have better retention. Their attitudes change toward the people they’re working with, such as the homeless or the elderly. And the projects build bridges between students and groups of people with whom they wouldn’t often have contact. Most importantly, it helps develop a sense of responsibility for and pride in their community. Youth Ambassadors study timeframe, budget, resources and benefit, work hard together to reach their goal and share in reflection and celebration.
