Service Learning - How it Works


Find your community placement site. See the community services sites list (PDF) for your options.

  • Review the websites of the agencies where you are considering serving.
  • Make an appointment to discuss opportunities that will meet your course objectives. Share the letter from your course instructor that discusses what objective you need to meet for the course with the service hours. START this process within 2 weeks of your course!
  • Discuss their requirements for orientation, training and scheduling your hours.
  • Each time you go to serve at your community site take your Hours Report/Verification and Final Evaluation Form (PDF) and record your hours. The site supervisor will need to initial each entry. You must plan and reflect on your service to meet your course outcomes/assignment and gain the most from this experience.
