Description

Service learning (SL) is a form of experiential learning that uses community service to enhance program learning outcomes through mutually beneficial activities and student reflection opportunities (Anderson, Royster, Bailey & Reed, 2011). Experiential learning in an SL context provides an opportunity for learners to use acquired discipline knowledge and critical analysis as they participate in a real life activity to derive new learning and insights. Service learning activities also enhance academic curricula and build valuable community-college relationships (Bohn & Schmidt, 2008). This abstract describes university learner outcomes of a successful SL program that connects university and community high school students via a mutual interest in fashion.
