Application of Lessons

“I kept stats for the team, so that helped me with my math skills." Nicole

“ I felt academic service-learning was an effective learning tool, because it gave me hands on experience with what I had to do for that class. I learn easier if I have a visual aid in front of me." Alexis

Career Awareness

“ Community Service Learning provided me with increased social skills which may prove very valuable in future career experiences." Dan

“ Working at the Salvation Army made me consider social work as a profession." Emily

Civic Responsibility

“ In my Community Service, I learned that political people do a lot more than you might think to win a seat in state office. It takes more than money and a lot of signs." Justin

“ I think that it’s important for teenagers to be part of a community. We are the future and the more we know, the better it is." Anna
