IDC Creative Component Service Learning

Service-learning connects meaningful community service with academic learning, personal growth and civic responsibility. Service-learning is a much more involved experience than a community service activity or citizenship experience. It requires in-depth study to plan and initiate appropriate action to tackle important issues and ultimately to make a real difference in the life of an individual(s) and in the community. The feature that distinguishes service-learning from volunteering or community service is that both learning and service are intentionally emphasized.
