Today, community service activities are being combined with academic instruction to make learning experiences more meaningful and to show you the importance of giving back to the community. This combination, known as "Service Learning," has proven to be a win-win concept for both the colleges and the community organizations that participate in the programs. Part of the QUICK COACH GUIDE series, QUICK COACH GUIDE TO SERVICE LEARNING is a compact booklet designed to help you get the most out of your service experience. Topics are organized chronologically, from the selection of a volunteer project, to the in-class presentation upon completion of the project. The appendix includes various service-learning project descriptions, resources for creating in-class presentations, and information about locating local nonprofit organizations.
