Abstract

This paper examines the state of service learning on the island of Guam via an internship with the Guam Department of Education. Service-learning is fairly new to Guam and is underdeveloped. Students struggle to find programs that support service-learning opportunities, the transportation to get them there, and lack of coherence to their school curriculum. This paper examines multiple components of the service-learning program, including an environmental scan, a senior survey, outreach, training, and partnerships, and the development of a service learning directory and calendar. These components were examined within the Positive Youth Development framework.
