Benefits of service-learning partnerships

CommunityEngagement@Wayne works with locally based community organizations such as schools, non-profits, social service agencies, and neighborhood associations. We work to connect local organizations with faculty who are creating service-learning courses. Together the community organizations and the faculty plan the students’ service work and decide the most effective way for students to connect service and curriculum. Community partners provide detailed information of their work so that the students’ service fits their current needs.
