Service-Learning involves integrating community service or other forms of engagement into course content. As a result, students are able to gain real world skills and enhance their learning while contributing to the community. Service-Learning projects are perfect for organizations that have specific needs. For example, some Service-Learning partnerships have resulted in social media marketing plans, research and data gathering, and computer databases. Service-Learning projects are great for organizations that can benefit from long-term volunteers. Many courses that study a specific social issue can require students to serve in agencies that address that issue.
One-Time Service Projects do not require an ongoing commitment and typically require little to no training. They are often great for large groups but can be for individuals as well. Examples of One-Time Service Projects are collection drives, trash and litter control, sorting and organizing donations, helping with a special event, or participating in a walk or fundraising event.
