Description The Service Learning project is designed to help students understand the concept of service learning through direct participation in a service learning activity. Service Learning is a teaching and learning approach that integrates community service with academic study to enrich learning, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. A service learning activity includes learning objectives and structured reflection on the service activities. Your task is to select an organization-it could even be the one you work for! You can include information, after asking the questions below. What is the name of the organization? Does it have a mission statement? What is the history or background of the organization? What services does the community partner provide for the wider community? What need(s) do these service(s) fill? Look for supporting statistics from informational brochures and/or a site orientation. How does the local need compare with the national need? What major issues, obstacles, or challenges do individuals served by the community partner face on a day-to-day basis? Where does the money to fund this organization come from? Does the organization receive adequate funding, at the present time? What does the funding for the future look like? Besides financial support, what other ways does the broader community support this organization? How many paid staff members are employed at the agency? What role does the staff seem to play on a regular basis for those served by the organization? How many unpaid workers serve at the agency? What are different ways unpaid workers serve the organization? How will you spend your time assisting your community partner? What are the special issues you need to be aware of in your role at the service site? Is there additional information you would like to note? What additional questions do you have about your community partner, its clients, and the issue area? Instructions: A 3 page written paper, in APA format and must included at least 3 references in APA format. A 5 slide PowerPoint presentation must be included:
