Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n4 p22-23 Apr 2010

This month's Techniques magazine celebrates service-learning and the contributions that it makes to students' learning by fostering civic engagement while students learn in hands-on, real-world contexts. For close to half a century, service-learning has spread throughout schools in the United States as students engage in activities as diverse as the schools they attend. Students in schools in Tennessee, Louisiana, and North Carolina typify the excellent outcomes that service-learning can promote; from road safety to feeding the needy to promoting the donation of blood, these students are working to be agents of change in their respective communities while learning invaluable life lessons.
